Subjects Interior Design
Summary In this chapter I look at the practice of interior designing through Deleuzian glasses with a particular focus on the concepts of interior and interiority and their production through techniques of designing. As an interior designer with a practice that approaches curating and exhibition design as one of interiorization, I have used Deleuze's thinking as a tool to shift Cartesian and phenomenological models of subject/object relations that inflect the practices of exhibition and curation as well as architecture. His critique of interior and interiority as isolated, pre-existing entities provokes a thinking and doing otherwise in a discipline where space and subjectivity are assumed pre-givens. Coming from a discipline that attends to the relation between people and the environment where interiority and interior are coupled - relations, movement and proximities foreground the production of interior and exterior. Framing is a design technique of curatorial and exhibition design practice; through selection and arrangement, matter is folded and intensified. Elizabeth Grosz's chaos, territory, art. deleuze and the framing of the earth is another lens in this chapter. Her book is based on a keynote lecture she gave at a symposium I co-convened called INSIDEOUT that brought the creative practices of landscape and interior design together in dialogue. Grosz proposed the concept of the frame as the condition of all the arts: 'The frame is what establishes territory from out of the chaos that is the earth. ... the constitution of territory is the fabrication of the space in which sensations may emerge, from which a rhythm, a tone, colouring, weight, texture may be extracted.'
