Description :
This article elaborates on how mobility and stillness, in both space and time, are intertwined and mutually influence each other by analysing second home usage of old cottages that formally were dwelling houses of poor tenant small-holdings in Sweden. It shows that these places continuously emerge through entanglements of mobility and stillness and of present and past times. It demonstrates that the users go to the cottage to be at a place where they, with the help of the preserved materiality and history of the cottages, can feel rooted and still. At the same time the cottages offer imaginary time travels and experiences of other times and lifestyles.
