Time Space Compression

Walking through the streets of Dundee through residential areas, housing estates, industrial sprawl, city and the places in-between. I feel the past, present and future collide. Shifting between what the land had been, what it is now and the possibilities of what it could become.

I follow the line of the tram onto the  Perth Road and I am surprised by what cultures influence such a small stretch of street. I find Turkish, Italian and Oriental restaurants. I can drink coffee from South America or buy traditional Scottish fare. As I walk, I count the countries shaping the street and I think of the community, now worldwide. I wonder what transformation the community has made over time? How different a tram journey along this street would have been.
