Greetings poly-topophiles. I am Eureka Dorn. I’ve led a lifelong career in local living intergenerational economics and placemaking, mostly in New York City and Latin America. This event, on the ‘Death of Place’, was primarily conceived through my Transition Design doctoral research at Carnegie Mellon University, researching life-cycles, movement, and relationality of place. In 2018, I wrote and produced a play in Brooklyn about the Ghost Town of Last Chance, Colorado, a prairie town with a fleeting purpose where my father was raised. My experience of place is informed by my relational experiences between the civically-devoid, consumer-driven suburb, nostalgic and lesson-laiden-legacies of the Prairies, pluri-complex devastation and beauty of Latin America, and the ‘place where the future goes to audition’(Ed Koch), New York City.
