As I leave this space I move further along towards Electra Street, a name referring to an old cinema or electric shops, depending on whom you ask. In rapidly urbanizing cities places have no names, they keep changing, like the buildings that are being torn down. The sound of jack-hammers and wrecking balls define their soundscape, evoking a mysterious desire for constant reinvention.
These are places where the streets have no name, lyrics from a song by U2 which plays in my head for some reason; also the song "Aquarela do Brasil" from the movie Brazil whose sole purpose is to transport you to a realm of fantasy, away from an alienating, dystopian environment.
A bus stop appears on the other side. I see a gathering of people, not necessarily waiting for the bus. Crossing the street a large empty lot is packed with South-Asians. The focal point is an old decrepit building which contains at ground level restaurants, a typing shop, mobile phone stores. A sign of life concentrated around an ancient structure. I spend some time in this space — a terrain vague as urbanists would call it; an abandoned site taken over by laborers, defying the imposed order of a rational city.
