SITUATION was an event – symposium, exhibition and a series of city occupations – initiated and arranged by the RMIT Interior Design program. SITUATION brings attention to the designing of interiors as a practice engaged in spatial and temporal production; a practice that works in the midst of social, cultural, historical and political forces; a practice open to contingency, chance and change; a practice engaged with singularity and specificity.
SITUATION highlighted ideas of ‘event’ and the eventful nature of interiors, lived space-time compositions in constant change; atmospheric compositions as distinct from artefacts; ephemerality; uniqueness; one-offs; a multiplicity of experience. The event aimed to contribute to the discipline of interior design at an international level by focusing on these key characteristics of practice, the kinds of research this produced and through this articulates, fosters and advocates opportunities for future practice.
