Walter Benjamin- The Arcades

I read the text on Moodle. It was well written and inspiring to read. It was interesting to imagine that a space can have such profound meaning, that an experience can be imbedded.  I thought the opening sentence was very powerful : "Streets are the dwelling place of the collective." It makes me think that we can linger soaking up the meaning, prosperity and the intelligence of a place. It makes us begin to think about not the making of the work but the concept and importance of the space that we exhibit in.
