Em{bod}ied Wallpaper

Digital Projections // 2019 

Manifesting relationships between body, textile and surface.

Em{bod}ied Wallpaper endorses possibilities for a new relationship between an interior and the human body; refusing the idea that the two are seperate entities. This negotiation between the body and space, sparks a dialogue of their intrinsic reverberation(1).

The term projection here is two fold :
1. Images are physically projected onto the body in space, along with; 2. A conceptual representation of the projection of values and governing social systems onto an individual.

By examining the body as space, its distinction from place is minimised. A mutual relationship between the body an its surroundings is produced, acknowledging their inherent affects on each other. A making and re making of spatial boundaries over time reinforces conservative power(2). By penetrating this cycle with acts of queering, it is disrupted, affording opportunities of new relationships to space.

“If the body is not a ‘being,’ but a variable boundary, a surface whose permeability is politically regulated, a signifying practice within a cultural field of gender hierarchy and compulsory heterosexuality, then what language is left for understanding this corporeal enactment, gender, that constitutes its ‘interior’ signification on its surface?(3) ~ Judith Butler
