"There are no doubt many reasons to believe that the spatial turn will prove to be of lasting
significance. But, in the final analysis, or so I would claim, the ‘spatial turn’ has proved to be
a move of extraordinary consequence because it questions categories like ‘material’, ‘life’ and
‘intelligence’ through an emphasis on the unremitting materiality of a world where there are
no pre-existing objects. Rather, all kinds of hybrids are being continually recast by processes
of circulation within and between particular spaces."
