Feel Free to go and comeback, I’ll be here is a curated process that interrogates relational interior design. The process aims to reframe everyday familiar space and the way it is encountered and designed. This requires interaction from participants who become collaborators, contributing to both production of different knowledges as well the unlearning of existing codified interiors.
The development the design process has come from others and my own material testing as well as application of theoretical ideas of unlearning and concepts of interiority. The process tests take “forms” such of organisation, sculpture, music, performance as well as conceptual changes in daily patterns. The program requires “participants” to choose from designed roles which provide ephemeral and spatial prompts. The roles are there to encourage creative interaction with their physical surroundings.
Feel Free to go and comeback, I’ll be here, is dynamic and occupies conceptual space which seeks to later manifest into changes of rhythms which challenge complacency in physical space. This epistemological approach considers the root cause of the production of one's own interior as well as social space, curating a body of work that unpacks the existing cultural production of multiple individuals within different communities.
The practice carefully considers and aims to promote radicality in Interior Design through the process unlearning, and to encourage discourse that reconsiders the existing understanding of its values. The proposition thus takes the form of subtraction of existing knowledge based on the current spatial rhythms forced onto bodies by a capitalistic state. Making room for new differences, now.
