MAS Context, 23 / ORDINARY. Fall 14.

MAS Context. 23 Issue, Fall 14.
metalocus, JOSÉ JUAN BARBA.
Mas Context presents ORDINARY, the twenty-third issue of this great quarterly publication. This issue seeks to explore the value of commonness and the everyday environment. It focuses on those elements that go unnoticed or that we take for granted, from buildings and objects to experiences and traditions. We look at the ordinary elements of life that are worth rediscovering and celebrating, as well as look ahead to what will become ordinary in the future.

So to present this issue, and because a few days ago I visited Chicago and Iker, I think it is best leave you with text and images of the first article.

“It’s truly a common man marvels at uncommon things and a wise man marvels at the commonplace.”
