As the citizen of the nation becomes the consumer of the multinational corporation, our roles as inhabitants of space become increasingly complicated. Our literature, our faith, our bodies all speak to the different ways that we find to occupy the shifting territories of the postmodern landscape. Looking both to the past and future can help us to discover the real and imagined ways our cultures can develop in more richly and defined ways.

"Upon those who step into the same rivers, different and again different waters flow."

Over 2500 years have passed, but Heraclitos' wisdom remains salient.

Each year generates a new approach and a new trend – a new branch from the old.
