The conference rambled the city of Vienna in May 2003 with questions concerning the temporary, the flexible, short-term and transitional, and the possibilities of incitement related to the identity of places. Temporary places should be distinguished from temporary uses of that places. The relation berween place and use/users was in focus. Contrary to non-places, these temporary places are projection screens, but they are not empty. The screen projected onto already contains information – one could imagine that it consists of photosensitive material were all projections leave their traces during time.
