A short observational portrait of a place in decay and a space of transition – Tallinn memorial of chess player Paul Keres, Estonian sportsman of the century.
„What begins as undifferentiated space becomes place as we get to know it better and endow it with value. ... If space allows movement, place is pause.“
Yi-Fu Tuan (Space and Place: The Perspective of Experience)
„If a place can be defined as something that is associated with identity, relationships and history, then space that cannot be defined by identity, relationships or history forms a non-place. ... Non-places creates neither singular identity nor relation; only solitute and similitude.“
Marc Augé (Non-Places: Introduction to an Anthropology of Supermodernity)
