In this thesis I write about the evolution of growing out of our personal
spaces. I aim to raise awareness of possible simple solutions on how we
should be pampering ourselves into our ever-existent intimate spaces
and the practice of thereby merging the subconscious (memories and
imagination) with reality.

The cover is made of a soft recycled cardboard material
with a woollen patch on the front for extra hapticity. Out
of the 15 copies, each has a different shape and colour of
the skin of the woollen patch on it. The engraved title also
forms to each different patch in its curve variously.
I visualised a sketched figure that represents people and
acts like the protagonist of the story following us throughout the pages. With the help of its body, it illustrates every
main information and theory, thereby giving simpler explanations to my words. The design of the text also takes
the shapes of all the things that are being said. While
sometimes, there is full interaction between content, format and figure.
Containing an additional separate ‘dictionary’ and a
folding out appendix with reference images, one helps
explaining the other, and together they provide supplementary visualisation for the book’s content.
