New research article on specular devices in the home

af Emma Klakk Christensen 8. februar 2024

STAY HOME-researcher Nicholas Thomas Lee has just published a new research article in the journal PAD, #25 Post-Domestic Habitat. The article entitled, Vanity Chamber: Reflections Upon Domestic Boundaries and Frontiers in a Post-Pandemic Home, reflects upon the role of specular devices within the home through the development of the spatial installation Vanity Chamber (exhibited at Designmusuem Danmark 2022-2023). It asks how the increased use of specular devices such as screens used for video telephony might affect boundaries between the domestic interior and the world outside.
