Space/Place/Memory/Mapping

Reading Bill Viola’s “Will There Be Condominiums in Space.”  Which space?  How do we define space and place?  I like the notion that editing is a way of creating something interesting out of something not interesting.  Editing is a way to make a space a place–human create architectures and structures around space to make place…at least that’s what Doreen Massey says, right?  Does Viola’s sense of the ways we will be able to edit/compose change the way we’ll think/remember too?
