Abstract In response to Carter's discussion of Vico's writing on the relationship between memory, imagination and invention, my proposition is that the localised acts of making and creating are the realising acts of invention, the materialising of thought, which may or may not result in the creation of a thing. In particular, I am interested in how this act or series of acts of materialising towards the made, is an act of habitation and place making. Informed by the fields of phenomenology, fashion, human geography and landscape theory, I propose that the practice of material thinking is an experience of the local and the articulation of place.
