Space: In  Two Parts

Space: In Two Parts is an interpersonal investigation of our relationship to the idea of “space,” not in a physical sense, but the one that exists in ourselves and the many moments to come when we inhabit inside them.

My aim for this thesis is to let us view and feel the ways others imagine their comfort outside of the physical spatial sense. This is what I imagine what it is like to grasp the ephemerality of space which changes the instant time passes.

The Survey Booklet is a tool to meditate and imagine the possibilities of what “safe space” can be. This is a transparent book of research for my inquiry on space which is a curated selection of survey responses. These are responses to questions such as "What colours", "shapes", "smells", "objects", "living organisms", "words are in your ideal safe space?" and "What existing", "movies", "music inform your safe space?". The selected responses in the booklet puts to words the underlying concepts which make up the nuances of intimate, safe space further explored in the second book.

Good Space Journal is a book about experiencing spaces that are intimate, meaningful, looking at the memories that remain long after viewing and feeling them. Featuring writing, visual art, and interactive exercises, Good Space Journal captures elements of personal good space, evoking the readers own associations with good space in this book. The ultimate question this book seeks to answer is how can one capture a fleeting moment or memory of a space?
