With urbanization, unprecedented changes in the history of humankind have occurred in a revolutionary quality with the introduction of "Speed" into urban life, the urban people have been the most affected ones by these changes. The globalization of consumption, the formation of the consumer society, the penetration of technology into every area of the lives of individuals, the images imposed on individuals by popular culture have made the city life more complicated, and for the body which is trying to locate itself among the rapid changes of urban life became difficult to perceive the objective world.

The bodies are the initiators of reaction in the limitless and mild borders of the city.
