Turbulence Spotlight: “Disappearing Places and Time Indefinite” by Matthew
Belanger, with Marianne R. Petit
“Disappearing Places” is both an archive and collective map of places that no longer exist, at least not as they once did. Users can upload stories and images, link them to a corresponding location or street address, and tag them. They can also browse the stories and places other individuals have submitted.
“Time Indefinite”: We all experience the occasional moment in life that has a clarity unlike the rest of our days. “Time Indefinite” is both a repository of significant moments and a timeline that charts where we collectively stand. Users can upload stories and images, tag them, and browse the stories and moments others have contributed.
We are launching these sites on the one year anniversary of Belanger and Petit’s 2006 Turbulence Commission, “The Saddest Thing I Own.”
