Sunday's Quote and Weekly Stats

Linking the world of objects are transportation and distribution systems, communications networks, schedules, production lines and other such measures of activity that makes American life as efficient and accessible as possible. Speed and availability collapse the physicality between space and distance, making the remote seem near and lending to the individual a sense of participation within national and global processes. Consequently, the American landscape is perhaps less a scenic and spatial phenomenom than it is a highly active and temporal medium, an economy, the construction of which is fluid, mobile, and transient.
