Example text

Materialities are attached to meanings and vice versa. Meaning has always been central to the geographical analysis of place. Places are locations with meaning. Things, smells, sounds – all become part of worlds of meaning as humans attempt to make sense of them. The ways in which this happens are almost infinite. Nominalism – the act of naming – is an important part of the creation of meaning in place. Simply naming a place can make it be a place rather than a mere location. Generic terms are not as powerful evocators of place as are proper names.

DeLanda, 2006: 14) Central to DeLanda’s notion of assemblage are two dimensions, or axes, which he derives from Deleuze and Guattari. One axis concerns the role played by components of a whole. It is an axis that has expressive roles at one end and material roles at the other. The second axis, unsurprisingly favoured by geographers, concerns the degree to which assemblages are stabilized around the coherent identity or, alternatively, are destabilized and made unclear. … the former are referred to as processes of territorialization and the latter as processes of deterritorialization.

The way that they are assembled make my house different from a supermarket or a football stadium and even, in details at least, different from other houses in the street. It is an assemblage that is always changing too – the food in the fridge is rarely the same as the day before, cracks grow in the plaster, weeds push out from between paving stones in the back garden. I could take out elements of this assemblage, yet the assemblage would remain despite the change in parts. My house is a discrete thing – an assemblage – made by the relation between parts and the things we do with those parts.
