Interior Futures

Abstract

I co-edited a book series with Graeme Brooker and Harriet Harriss of the Royal College of Art's Interior Design programme. Published by Crucible Press, it includes more than 50 contributed chapters in three volumes. I also co-authored a chapter—see linked output. In the introduction to the series, I characterise the interior not as a place but in terms of time, and the future conversely as place: ‘the future becomes a destination and the interior becomes a condition, a process, a vehicle for getting there.’

For the book launch, I curated a public exhibition at the RCA, selecting relevant works from various authors and others, including an artificial intelligence installation by Alex Taylor, which treated the gallery as a computational space. I also commissioned a new generative sound work from artist Alexa Boutsi. Together, the book chapter details the relational aspect of a computational approach to spaces, and the exhibition then served as an experiment in putting this into practice as a system which evolved over time, through the generative sound work and the AI installation.
