Interpreting Cultural Territories Through Prospect and Passage

This study seeks to inventory the devices of interpretation for the reading of cultural sites and territories.


The intention behind the inventory is to reveal the form making and management criteria that determine the assembly of prospect and passage in archeological sites and their cultural landscapes, as that assemly relates to the fostering of historical imagination and the experience of place.

This portrion of the inventory is a collection of digitally composited images interspersed with postcards both purchased and received during my tenure in Rome. The images are lossely organized into nine categories: prospect, monument/point, passage/vector, frame, threshold, transition, figured ground, enclosure, and interpretation.
