    Abstract

    In order to emphasize the dynamic character of the tourism-recreation product, an overarching concept is presented which integrates both supply and demand. The model shows the continuing transformation of the original tourism-recreation resource (either a landscape, a monument, an urban public space, a national park, or other elements) by activities and interventions by producers and consumers of many types, wittingly or not, for a variety of objectives. It embraces material practices as well as the role of image production and interpretation.
