A country subjects itself to the hegemony of essentialism through its use of borders to define its geography and its attempts to effectively identify itself through the distillation of its dominant cultural characteristics. It subscribes to the notion of hierarchy through the resulting stagnation of quantification and demobilization of investment in the development and urbanization of a country's geographic location. Every singularizing act is tied to essentialism through a relation to identity as an ultimate truth or an ultimate goal. Prior to World War II, countries subscribed to the shared language of identification: borders, history, geography and economic power, as well as a relation through dominant and subversive countries.

[...] Sanchez-Tranquilino describes the Pacheco as illuminations of a ?third space,? transcending separations within nationality, geography, rural and urban, that their space could not be quantified as belonging to the streets, but rather belonging to their ever changing relationships (101).

Out of Arendt's proposition and its roots within the following parable by Kafka, one can distil the relationship between meaning and identity as being dependent upon this as a structure between them: [S]he has two antagonists; the first presses her from behind, from the origin. The second blocks the road ahead. [...]

[...] Art has no definite form or description, however it is made tangible by its ability to breakdown a separation between meaning and form. Through its failure to be entirely form or meaning it is always becoming. Through its appropriations from both sides, from any side, like Pacheco culture, it is able to transcend the requirement to choose. Art fails when it ceases to respond to its relationships, to the interior of the interior, or the exterior, of the exterior, of the exterior, of the interior, of the exterior, when it correlates directly to space, or to form or to anything identifiable.
