The premises laid down by this book is that in our globalised world it is possible to construct a single unified narrative – though one with different facets – or to describe/specify a complex constellation of Interiors by means of the words that characterise them. Words tell stories, specify things; words also open onto other worlds and different ways of thinking. We want to understand, discuss, and compare notes, without having to classify: words generate ideas. Not only that: as they are passed around, words spread ideas, stimulate other ideas to germinate, constantly reinventing themselves because they are never definitive, but free and open to change. Words also represent things, and things can be a means of making new stories, new ideas. As words transform themselves over time in any given society, country or economy we should look for the “key words” for Interiors: let us freeze-frame certain ideas, clarify them, assert them – but always remembering they belong in an open panorama of thought.

Abstract

The premises laid down by this book is that in our globalised world it is possible to construct a single unified narrative – though one with different facets – or to describe/specify a complex constellation of Interiors by means of the words that characterise them. Words tell stories, specify things; words also open onto other worlds and different ways of thinking. We want to understand, discuss, and compare notes, without having to classify: words generate ideas. Not only that: as they are passed around, words spread ideas, stimulate other ideas to germinate, constantly reinventing themselves because they are never definitive, but free and open to change. Words also represent things, and things can be a means of making new stories, new ideas. As words transform themselves over time in any given society, country or economy we should look for the “key words” for Interiors: let us freeze-frame certain ideas, clarify them, assert them – but always remembering they belong in an open panorama of thought.
