matter and are key to how the story unfolds. Add your own personal touches

INTERSECTION

Description

Interested and non-interested parties gather at a certain location on a certain date and time, but what is not certain is what may occur and who is or is not participating. What makes this occasion an event and what is it to participate ?


Does this mean that whoever happens to be present at that location at that
time is a participant in an event marked by the specifics of time and place ?

What separates the location and the start and end times from adjacent
locations and times ? Where and when precisely are the boundaries of place
and time ?

Who is cleaving time and place and for what purpose? Of the co-occurring actions, stories and trajectories jostling en route which one(s) constitute the specified event INTERSECTION
