Going on field research, the filmmakers and artists of this programme record peripheral, vernacular but still memorable moments of their surrounding. If place is connected with memory, constructed by memory, these artists make aware, that memories may be connected to vernacular artifacts, to shop signs, ugly corners, technical constructions, street "furniture" or even telephone booths. If those vanish, something may get lost with them. The spatial representations and a reading of spaces in these films prove that the experience of place and location can be much more than a depiction or collection of memorabilia.
Visual research thus may connect us with reality instead of just showing landmarks or "sights", the "memorable" and camera-aided fact of "having been there" or the representation of the representative.
