Utopia, No Place


Evolution House 2013

In 1516 Sir Thomas More first wrote 'Utopia'. He coined the word 'utopia' from the InGreek ou-topos meaning 'no place' or 'nowhere'. But this was a pun - the almost identical Greek word eu-topos means a good place. So at the very heart of the word is a vital question: can a perfect world ever be realized?

My intension is to video a number of people saying what they thought or felt utopia meant to them. The edit would demonstrate that, no place would be achieved.
