Abstract
This article presents a dialogue on the disappearing gardens of Fez and the garden as a concept as they both relate to a film in the making: GARDENSOFFEZ. We approach the garden as an ‘other space’, one that fosters different worlds, and wonder how these can relate. Our thinking passes through the philosophy of Gilles Deleuze, allowing us to move from spaces to worlds in affective terms, to Michel Foucault’s concept of the heterotopia, where worlds can come together, slip into one another, to create new worlds. By, on the one side, looking at the actual situation of Rajae, the main character in the film, interacting with the gardens, and on the other side the virtual gardens of Jorge Luis Borges, we seek for how these newly emerging worlds can be seen as comprehensively material, being both actual and virtual at the same time.
