For the film maker Derek Jarman, his sea-shore cottage and its garden capture something similar to Foucault’s childhood heterotopia:
“…. the last of a long line of ‘escape houses’ I started building as a child at the end of the garden: grass houses of fragrant mowings that slowly turned brown and sour; sandcastles; a turf hut, hardly big enough to turn round in…” (Jarman, 1991:276)
