What is Place?

When asked what is Art? I often cheekily answer that for me Art is a verb – It is an action word and I am compelled to do it. With this in mind I have found it interesting to ponder Place the verb as well as Place the location. For it is often in the act of placing things (either physically or in thought) that we locate a place within our own ongoing story. And so meaningful places are often not stagnant they constantly change as both humans and nature place and replace things within them.
