This image is of the site of a video installation called "Kuba", after a neighbourhood in Istanbul. There are a few dozen TV's, each playing a video of a Kuba resident talking about ... whatever, their lives, stories they know, hopes, etc. some very interesting moments, but I only had an hour, which wasn't enough time. You could probably sit in different areas listening for over a day. The train was at an unused platform in the Central Station.

Invented today:

A culture nurtured over several hundred years whose main purpose is the creation of one perfect sentence.

A style of speech only spoken by the poor which compels the powerful to listen -- but which does not involve anger, lust, shopping, or religion.
