v. 2: corporeal complexities ii journal: International Journal of Interior Architecture + Spatial Design

Meg Jackson + Jonathon Anderson, editors

Corporeal Complexities, ii journal’s volume II, features articles and projects that explore the contingent relationships between body and space. The work examines the relationship of the human form in the design process, as a generator, as an observer, and as an active performer as it relates to interior architecture and spatial design.

The field of spatial design presumes that a designer operates at the scale of the human body. Whether resulting in the design of furniture, fashion, a residence, event, or urban park, this emergent field of practice privileges the performance of the body and its relationship to space. Spatial design is impacted by scale in relation to the performance of a body, but liberated from the boundaries of traditional disciplines.

Corporeal Complexities gathers exemplary projects that engage design complexities of the human body. This second issue explores new materials and technologies associated with contemporary design practices and features work that proposes unique ideas of space, materiality, and tectonics relative to human scale. This includes but is not limited to work in fashion, furniture, industrial design, architecture, performance, film, event design, the social sciences, and the arts.

v. 1: autonomous identities ii journal: International Journal of Interior Architecture + Spatial Design

Meg Jackson + Jonathon Anderson, editors

As emergent design specializations, spatial design and interior architecture have repositioned the way that we conceive, perceive, and experience our built environment. Autonomous Identities, ii journal’s inaugural issue, features scholarly design-research, visual compositions, and work that challenges disciplinary specificity. Spatial environments are informed by not only our perception of space, but also through their social engagement, performance engineering, and graphic integration. New awarenesses have converged to reimagine the design and construction of spatial and temporal interventions, as well as the corporeal and theoretical conditions of architectural environments and performance events.

Interior architecture and spatial design are poised to transform the design disciplines, and thus, Autonomous Identities identifies tomorrow’s spatial precedents. Both disciplines offer the potential to claim new territory by operating at the intersection of previously discrete knowledge bases. Thus, interior-related theory, praxis, and practice have assumed a collective crisis of identity. In this issue, the collected work has the potential to blur the traditional boundaries of the design by identifying provocative new spatial territories. The journal endeavors to gather exemplary projects that reveal interdisciplinary approaches to research and ‘making’ skills as they apply to interiors, light-mobile-architectures, and designed objects. Autonomous Identities reveals contemporary developments in design education and practice relative to the exploration of emerging materials and technologies. The issue highlights experimentation, theory, research, speculation, and innovation through its focus on collectively re-thinking ‘space’.

Autonomous Identities features cross-disciplinary work that offers an alternative perspective on space, materiality, and tectonics. Work may include, but is not limited to, spatial design, graphic design, architecture, industrial design, engineering, fashion, performance, film, and multi-media, as well as the environmental and social sciences.
