# Imagining Recovery by Eduardo McIntosh

Eduardo McInstosh (whose former work has been already published here and here on boiteaoutils) kindly sent me his last work which was his entry to the Imagining Recovery Competition. This time architecture is used as self-metaphor of an existing Plato's cave system and a fictional one both assumed as keeping their statute of "prisons". Nevertheless one imply a difficult active involvement of its actors who are invited to participate to act in the field of possible just like Borges describes it in the Babel Library.

As I told him, I just have a little discrepancy of opinion as far as the "Beaubourg effect" is concerned. As a former post was showing, thirty years after its construction Pompidou Centre is still hated by a lot of people in France and its presence within Paris' core is a continual question about architecture, art, public space and urbanity.

However I really egg you on reading the whole text, because it tackles some issues which may be less politically correct in a era which is trying to impose ecology and mediatization as architectural dogmas...

wow! that's a pretty tough critic of our "sick sad world!"

That makes me think about drawings from a time where critic was note welcome,
piranesi's carceri are vison of a endless prison, where architecture has no boundary
and is a representation of hell...

see a former post about Piranesi http://boiteaoutils.blogspot.com/2007/11/piranesi.html

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
