'Space and time are themselves socialized and localized through complex and deliberate practices of performance, representation and action (...) Locality is ephemeral unless hard and regular work is undertaken to produce and maintain its materiality. Yet this materiality is sometimes mistaken for the terminus of such work, thus obscuring the more abstract effects of this work on the production of locality as a structure of feeling'.
