What is the future of places in a time of cultural, economic and even environmental globalisation? It is not to compete with one another for a more prominent servitude on the world stage. It is to reconnect to the regions where they belong. But the regions are creative assemblages that exercise care at a distance; they are poetic cobwebs where the interest is generated along the threads linking place to place. Regions considered like this are oceanic, waves forming in them spread to the edge of a collective dream.
