Urban X

What is value in a pursuit; Hector Urquhart had this introduction to the 1860's Popular Tales of the West Highlands.

"Practical men may despise the tales, earnest men condemn them as lies, some even consider them wicked ; one refused to write any more for a whole estate ; my best friend says they are all ' blethers.' But one man's rubbish may be another's treasure, and what is the standard of value in such a pursuit as this?"

MiMa at GEUS has set out to pursue this quest in the project Urban X
