terra nullius – Origin. Mid 19th century: Latin, literally “land belonging to no one,” from terra, earth, and nullius, genitive of nullus, no one.
There are spaces outside memory that belong to no-one or to nature, and there are places cast out of memory and returned to nature or to no-one. Across them there is an order, an order that brings together in time the ground, the territory, the space, the place, the land, the soil.
