UNBOUNDED: ON THE INTERIOR AND INTERIORITY. Ed. by Dolly Daou et al. Cambridge Scholars Publishing, Newcastle upon Tyne, 2015. 176 pp. with 58 ills. 22 x 16 cm. ISBN 9781443870702 In English.
Publisher's description: In interior design, the definition and popular perception of the interior has long been concerned with bounded spaces, and with the relationship between private and public realms. However, two issues have challenged traditional boundaries between interior and exterior, and private and public: first, the emergence of new technological practices, and second, a broader understanding of diverse cultures. Popular perceptions of public and private space are currently being revised, and the interior is increasingly unbound in various ways, as many of the contributors to this volume (and the colloquium which preceded it) show. Both technological and cultural practices challenge and disrupt the common-sense idea of an interior space as a contained enclosure with clearly defined boundaries. Instead, the blurriness and ambiguity between public and private, inside and outside, and interiority and exteriority are challenging understandings of the interior. This book provides additional perspectives on the shifting understanding of the interior and its recent transformations through case studies of both real and "unreal" places.
