Social conventions mark our day-to- day lives. It doesn't matter that some of them are uncalled for. They are present everywhere: in the supermarket, in the queue to the cinema or when we bump into a neighbour in the elevator. Often, we don't say anything but we mean everything with a subtle nod. They are automatic and subconscious ways of communication that we use. Raised eyebrows, smiles, pats on the back or not staring at other people for too long.
"Nowhere in particular" gives this topic some thought: about how those standards end up making us who we are, defining us.
