Ambient History

Walking the text of the city
"All places have pasts. Every building, every street, every neighbourhood is surrounded by a haze of historical narrative, a fog of bygone events and experiences. I call this ambient history, and that is the text — the urban equivalent of the White Horse — that is available to be read. When we stroll along a street with minimal attentiveness, we might notice a street name here, a faded business sign there, and thus we see only the “thicks and thins” of the characters that make up the ambient history. To read the actual text, we must dive deeper, we must pay more attention."

Ambient conversation is a great stimulator of creativity
