Interiors Matter: A live interior

The project takes a closer look at different conceptions of interior’s temporality, duration and instability based on the assumption that the interior is a live environment, continuously produced by the placing of objects and furniture.


Interiors matter: A live interior takes a closer look at different conceptions of interior’s temporality, duration and instability based on the assumption that the placing, replacement and reassembly of objects, furniture and entire interiors, makes the interior a live environment, continuously in production. Through artistic investigations of making, by coupling craft and digital techniques, this practice-based research project explores interiors’ provisional aspects, from occasional arrangement of objects in a room, interiors’ and furniture’s lifecycle, material processes, to aspects of alteration and reuse. In the first phase of the project, domestic environments have been studied using 3d-scanning.

The project is a collaboration between Konstfack and KTH The Royal Insitute of Technology.
