‘The true mystery of the world is the visible not the invisable’ Patrick Keiller. Robinson in Space.

Posted in Uncategorized by humanendeavour photography on October 10, 2010

Robinson in Space (d. Patrick Keiller, 1996) begins with Robinson’s unseen narrator quoting the 1960s French radical Situationist Raoul Vaneigem demanding that “a bridge between imagination and reality must be built.” It ends with Robinson’s disappearance and the narrator declaring that “I cannot tell you where Robinson finally found his Utopia.” In between is the search for that Utopia in the industrial landscape of England, and an attempt to bridge the gap between two worlds.

    Great stuff on this website. I also loved the exhibition.

    An Architect friend of mine writes a blog on the city space and the mortality of buildings.

    I told him to check out the show and though I should extend the same courtesy.

    The blog URL is

    Keep up the good work.
