Susie Attiwill will present research where questions of interior and interiority are posed in relation to contemporary conditions of living, inhabitation, subjectivity and pedagogy through: a practice of designing with a curatorial inflection attending to arrangements (and rearrangements) of spatial, temporal and material relations; a practice of supervising PhD creative practice research candidates; and a practice of teaching interior design.
