dc.description.abstract The issues of domesticity in the contemporary urban realm will be examined in the following manner. I will first investigate the implications of what it means for a 'table' and 'chair' to exist in a space both physically and psychologically. Issues of value and a sense of place as well as the concept of civilization given any cultural context all begin with space defining elements associated with human habitation. As my research challenges the preconceived notions that society makes about modern domestic life, I will build a series of full-scale domestic furnishings that will critically reference my philosophical inquiry about the nature of place. The built forms will symbolize society's condition of mobility as well as function as usable pieces of furniture that inculcate the user to an adaptable sense of home.
