IDEA JOURNAL 2012
Writing /drawing: negotiating the perils and pleasures of interiority
Guest Editor: Dr Sarah Treadwell

The forthcoming issue of the IDEA JOURNAL calls for contributions in
the form scholarly essays, visual essays and theorized creative practice
on the topic of Writing /Drawing: negotiating the perils and pleasures
of interiority.

Provocation
Interiority is subject to specific sorts of disciplinary representation
and the premise for this provocation is that images of interiority are
frequently at odds with, or resistant to conventional representational
systems. Interiority is attached to socially and culturally selected
manifestations of power, gender, labour and materiality and these
everyday conditions emerge in images of interiority, drawn or written,
amplifying and disquieting usual disciplinary concerns.

Three sketched examples:
One
In an architectural journal is a description of a house in Bordeaux by
Rem Koolhaas, as recounted by Susana Ventura on a visit to the house
where she follows Guadalupe who is the housekeeper:
*I follow Guadalupe back and forth. She zigzags up the ramp of the
patio. She says this is the best way not to be tired at the end. * Off
goes Guadalupe with the vacuum cleaner in hand, vacuuming everything she
encounters. First, the kitchen. She displaces the movable furniture
below the kitchen bench, vacuums the drawers, the countless bottles, the
ceiling, the door * She shakes the carpet on the patio, puts it back in
place. Then on to the top floor, where she vacuums Marie*s bathroom
and bedroom, the elevator platform, every single corner she can find.*
(Susana Ventura, *Being Stuck: Between reality and Fiction*, Log 16,
Spring/Summer 2009, 145)
The architectural interior is revealed through a reporting of movement
and a slow material engagement with surface, writing into the interior
an everyday attentiveness and neglect, constructing interiority as both
abject, with the stuffy persistence of unwanted patina (shedding skin
and the adherence of soot), and as a form of worship, gilded with
polish. The interior is constructed through writing in terms of its
occupation and maintenance with language that is both personal and
detached.

Two
A black and white line drawing of an interior set up by a vertical
section perspective of House and Atelier Bow-Wow by Atelier Bow-Wow,
described by Irene Cheng as a parody of a technical drawing
incorporating *many elements normally excluded from construction
documents, such as perspectival depth; silhouettes of human figures
engaged in prosaic activities like eating, brushing teeth, gardening,
and sleeping; props like slippers, stuffed animals; house plants, and
shag rugs; outlines of the views seen through windows; and the obsessive
rendering of textures like those of wood surfaces.* (Irene Cheng House
of Mirth: Atelier Bow-Wow*s Ironies* in Harvard Design Magazine 29
Fall/Winter 2008-9, 62.)
A drawing that shifts the nature of the technical interior, the
dimensioned, constructed and abstract set of building information, into
an inhabited, furnished narrative of daily life. The daily life is
however artificial; the people are ghosts and the stories told by the
furnishings are improbably clean; there is no colour.

Three
A black and white photograph taken in the early years of the twentieth
century by Alfred James Tattersall shows the interior of a Samoan fale
with two women lying supposedly asleep on mats in the middle of the
empty space. Titled, *Interior of Native House*, the image might be
seen as the ubiquitous collector*s assemblage with wooden headrests in
view and the women contained by the borders of their mats. The
photographic focus, however, is sharpest as it traces the framing and
woven materiality of the fale, recording the precision of the bindings
that connect structure, while the gentle breath of the women, in the
long exposure, very slightly blurs the image and resists their capture.

(Tattersall, Alfred James (1866-1951), *House interior with women on
sleeping mats*, Date unknown [c 1925] Samoa b&w original negative, ID:
1/2-094329-F Alexander Turnbull Library, Wellington.)

This provocation seeks papers that address the complications and
felicities of representing all forms of interiority (domestic, work
spaces, institutional or public spaces) from technical, theoretical,
programmatic or cultural perspectives. It seeks to attract discussions
on representations of the interior constructed with writing, drawing
(analogue or digital), installation, performance, photography, film or
building.


THE IDEA JOURNAL ACCEPTS:
DESIGN RESEARCH PAPERS
that demonstrate development and engagement with interior
design/interior architecture history, theory, education and practice
through critique and synthesis. The focus is on the documentation and
critical review of both speculative research and practice-based
research

REFEREED STUDIOS
that represent the nature and outcomes of refereed design studios which
have either been previously peer reviewed in situ and/or critically
discussed through text and imagery for the IDEA JOURNAL.

PROJECT REVIEWS
that critically evaluate design-based works which seek to expand the
nature of spatial and theoretical practice in interior design/interior
architecture and associated disciplines.

VISUAL ESSAYS
that demonstrate critical, pictorial responses to design conditions.

FOR BOOK REVIEWS
to encourage debate into the emerging literature dedicated to the
expression and expansion of the theory and practice of interior
design/interior architecture.
