#1.4 spaces of representation < >

A space of representation is alive: it speaks. It has an affective kernel or centre: Ego, bed, bedroom, dwelling, house; or, square, church, graveyard. It embraces the loci of passion, of action and of lived situations, and thus immediately implies time. (Lefebvre 1974/1991)

The goal of the game of LIFE (MBM Games) is also an invitation - You too can be a millionaire! The home is a haven, yet deeply implicated in remote relationships across space and time. Inner city and suburb are differential spaces; one informing and subsidising the other.
