dc.description.abstractThis art research project explores the construct of private space by examining the nature of a dialectic relationship between inside and outside and the resulting implication of private and public. In addition, private space, which is viewed as a personalized retreat that serves to provide shelter, security and familiarity, is further investigated through the use of pre-used domestic and personal objects. The physical and psychological qualities of pre-used objects are utilized in installation to create spaces that evoke a sense of use. This engagement with the notion of occupation is used to question the relationship between the individual and pre-occupied spaces and to consider how the issue of access can affect an understanding of the notion of private.
