  1. Fascinating, particularly on how “place” has such a malleable personality, something to keep in mind when we think of the inequalities attached to our current dystopias. The powers that be like to tell us that things they don’t wish to change are just the way they are, but I’ve often said a ghetto – any kind of ghetto – is not a place until it’s a state of mind. The personality of place is a product of nurturing just as much as is the daily life of the average human. I love that Kelly’s work presents the interweaving of place, individual, and the range of that individual’s desires within the bounds of their spaces.
