'The Third Space.'

Giselle is also interested in merging the digital ( immaterial) with the traditional (paint, material.)

She had studied Auge and his theory on the 'non-place ' versus the 'anthropological place,' and developed a  theory that occasionally the two merge to create a 'third space.'

In the image on the right , we see a section of Miami Financial District, the 'non-place' as it lacks inscriptions of the social bond, and is the reverse of the anthropological place such as Little Havana , which is why some of the imagery is inverted .

Giselle's own inverted image of people playing dominos in 'Domino Park' in Little Havana represents an area of the social bond , public space which is being consumed by capitalism.

People often change the rules of space , through carnival , protest or marathon , converting a anonymous  'non-place' such as a high speed road into a space which brings people together.

On these occasions people reverse the rules , which is why some of the images on the right are inverted .

These images of a colonial past coupled with an image of a woman seemingly whimsical for the past highlights our tendency to look to back to an imagined utopia which in reality was far from ideal.
