About the talk
We live among, together, within, and through things. Departing from this idea, from a phenomenological perspective (which conceives the relationship of the body we inhabit with other bodies and things as defining the experience of home) and following new material approaches (based on the relationships between more than humans and their agencies), I explore the liminal state of objects between the space of the body and the space of the room in order to formulate a thing-based conceptual and methodological tool for transforming personal space in existing dwelling –in a time when there are fewer and fewer reasons to build, and more to make better use and enjoyment of what we already have.
