The Post-Factory. Thrown into the Place

     The post-factory, construed as the space of a former factory that has been subject to material, functional and experiential transformation, would be such a place that brings to us back a lost sense of gravity. It does so not just by redescribing and redefining the former plant - which may not be serious enough - but by bringing the place back to our experience, by recovering its palpable presence in that it makes us repeat some movements, put our feet on the very ground, touch the machines, fill the space with our activity and inhabit anew the idea that we have just called into being. The post-factory is an already transformed experience that still pervades us and an idea that we wish to relate to in order to make it inhabitable.
