Depending On Time is situated in a changing landscape during the development of a shopping centre. The book takes this period of change as its subject and draws out narratives, expectations and perspectives in the run up to its completion. Through transcribed conversations with small businesses, shoppers, local historians, architects, town planners and developers the book maps the anatomy of the development and traces a the trajectory of consumer culture from the city’s Victorian and Edwardian arcades through to the monolithic mall. Crucially asking the question: Who are cities for?
Depending on time is 152 pages long with full colour print and DVD Rom showing the film, A Million Moments & the audio guide, The Museum Of The Moment.
