Life of City

"His(Walter Benjamin) perception, like that of the dandies, 'makes strange' the familiar and disregarded aspects of city life. It inverts our values: what was once seen as marginal becomes the essence of city life and that which makes it truly beautiful, even if its beauty is a beauty of ugliness." pg 5, into the labyrinth

The modern city has grown into monuments of the urban life, where its existence is permanent and everlasting; apt for the rapid pace of life of the moderns. Efficiency and clarity seeks for a tool to stabilize change: the grid. The city remains in equilibrium like a machine, and is fed life through the veins of grids by its inhabitants . The beauty of imperfection and disequilibrium is long forgotten, simply for the city to persist in reluctant state of contentment for the modern city life.
