Contributors to the IDEA JOURNAL 2010 respond to the provocation Interior Ecologies: exposing the evolutionary interior to propose emergent interior debates on contemporary spatial, material and performative practices. Can a critical ecological approach to practice and discourse in interiors enable expanded locales for research and experiment across disciplinary and theoretical boundaries? Normative concepts concerned with the designed habitat, or discursive debates around the interfaces of interior and exterior conditions, may fall short in provoking interior thinking to engage through ecologies of practice that contribute to advancing environments, technologies and cultures.
The IDEA JOURNAL 2010 exposes the engagement of interior practice in ecological, political, cultural and economic systems. The IDEA JOURNAL publishes scholarly accounts of writing and projects that move across disciplinary perspectives and temporal systems into an open-ended enquiry into ecologies for and of the interior.
