Interiorities in Material Culture

Steve Larkin

In earlier research we see how improvisational methods allows ‘objects’ to develop, at various scales, across the project. These contribute to the evolving ‘spatial’ ambitions of the project in a landscape and cultural context. Both these strands of thought develop in tandem, and without bias, until synthesis is reached to form compositional tapestries within the project’s evolving logic.

I now examine this ambition for synthesis in two studies within the relevant creative fields. These studies are a gutter detail for a house in Co. Carlow, Ireland and development of a short piece of recorded music. In this way I hope to test conclusions made in earlier research and make new observations about synthesis within the creative fields themselves.
