Social refiguration and the global: This paper explores the transformations produced in the city space as an interconnected assemblage of public images rendering new iconic logics inserted in globalization processes. It studies the main aspects of the spatial languages the subject should comprehend in relation to public space (time) and its refiguration in contemporary cultural practices. The city as urban texture of our new forms of social interactivity must be examined in its positive capacity in the production of subjectivity, of the quotidian, not in a negative assertion of the disappearance of the city. Image-city: The constellation of images emerging in the contemporary project of globalization emphasizes the need to problematize the language of city-space. Time is again a central element in the equation of space. The continuous spatial extension of the city reveals one that is constructed as the image of itself. New technologies alongside of social interactivity and aesthetic practices recasts a variable coding in which categories such as public space and social communication, social (time) history, identity and tradition must be examined as ´superblocks´ reframing the language of cities. The emergence of a mode of signification traversed by visual culture refigures a subject immersed in multiplicities travelling in a constant exchange of forces. In this complex and shifting contexts we relocate encounters, dissensus and resistances. As we successively render a city imagined into an image-city we translate the sensible object into an abstract one, the city-space as a text. We might assume this translation as repetition for the city has always being a text, constituted by images, by abstractions in the construction of space. Observation and visual analysis: Contemporary cities, specifically Latin-Americans cities, will be examined using the categories of public space and aesthetic practices. Observation will be documented using the technologic possibilities of digital photography. As the photography becomes-text, visual analysis will provide the basis for unifying image and context; for reading the world-image in the surface of the 'glocal', for enhancing its interpretive and active potential in space/time. Social dialogue: The construction of space is organized within the domain of the reconstruction of world space. Central to this issue is the shift in scientific and social paradigms encompassing the category of the city in complex and multiple paradoxical dimensions. The city, the global city, is the time frame for cultural practices that expresses the possibility -more than ever present- of a social -extended- dialogue.
