In his photographic series ‘Selected people’, the American photographer Pelle Cass displays a remarkable space-time axis reversal, the striking simplicity of which exemplifies the schizoanalysis of the city (Guattari 2013). The prefix ‘schizo’ is used to designate resistance to the paranoiac fixation on a single (and supreme) source of all signification (Deleuze & Guattari 2003: 194). The subject-matter of his experiments takes us to a square in Boston, USA. Yet, in terms of our investigation, the choice is purely contingent. Our ambition is to map the becoming of a specific place by way of non-correlationist hetero-poietic mattering, irremovable impredicative (auto-catalytic) looping and non-local causing (Turvey 2004: 57–70). In simple terms, it is the movement that determines the space, not the other way around.’’
