Tessellated Floorscape (2010-):
interior acts of production, siting and participation
Keywords:Modular, Interior, Fabrication, Spatial design
The project Tessellated Floorscape (2010) consists of a modular rug that is digitally constructed from remnant carpeting, the collaborative process through which the rug as a material product has circulated through different social venues from fabrication to inhabitation, and the writing which serves as a reflective tool that links the specificity of the project to a broader set of issues in contemporary design. This essay focuses on three aspects of the project – production, siting, and participation – in an effort to map out a network of relationships among people, places and resources, and by doing so expose a set of ecologies that informs and shapes the creative practice of interior design as a materially and socially sustainable practice. The aim has been to take advantage of the physical portability of the installation, engage a range of public spaces as its temporary sites, and see what kind of value the acts of spatial re-territorialisation may hold in the study and evolution of the contemporary interior.
