….just as we perceive things where they are present, in space, we remember where they have passed in time…
Gilles Deleuze, The Time Image

The fact is that space ‘in itself’ is ungraspable, unthinkable, unknowable.
Time ‘in itself’, absolute time is no less unknowable. But that is the whole point: time is known and actualized in space, becoming a social reality by virtue of a spatial practice. Similarly space is known only in and through time.

Henry Lefebvre, The Production Of Space

A space exists when one takes into consideration vectors of direction,
velocities, and time variables. Thus space is composed of intersections of mobile elements. It is in a sense actuated by the ensemble of movements deployed within it.

Michel De Certeau, The Practice Of Everyday Life
