Urban communities are built from interlacing networks existing together, networks that over time root themselves in physical geography. Over generations networks cross over, split, evolve or even end being replaced by new networks. If we were able to see these forming over time, urban areas would be taken over by delicate strands of interlaced webbing. Society has found many ways of recording the remarkable especially through art with the erection of memorials and alike celebrating or commemorating the great and the good. However, urban environments are made up of so much more and continue to exist throughout the post marked events that we decide to remember.
