dc.description.abstractDesign Within the Detail explores the ways in which I dwell by mapping tacit rituals and experiences of my everyday living. A series of haptic cartographies of home underpins my spatial inquiry. Key to this investigation is the understanding that home is both a material and imaginary assemblage of memory, matter and event. The familiar notion of home is reconfigured through a series of material and surface experiments to reveal home as a temporal and material event-space. Home, more than a physical spatial structure, is a feeling that resides within. We do not occupy home; home is what occupies us. The significance of this research is to locate home within a transitional phase of my life, where I have outgrown my family home, and at the same time I am inscribed by it. Can a feeling of home be lost? How is home inscribed materially in such a way that it is experientially relocatable? Design Within the Detail creates a threshold between the past and the present home in a work that is a collection and relocation of the intimate and familiar engagement I have with home and connects to an audience in a gallery space through vulnerability. An assemblage, a door frame compiled with etches, scrapes, stories and memories expressed through material details. Design Within the Detail creates a sensory sequence that plays on the temporal aspect of a home and how delicate memories are. The way these memories of my past are represented through the different materials and assemblages of a common door-frame can be experienced differently through bodily senses to change our perception of ‘home.’en_NZ
