On Surface and Place: Between Architecture, Textiles and Photography
On Surface and Place is a rich and poetic exploration of surfaces and foregrounds their significance in our understanding and experience of place. Departing from Gottfried Semper s discussion of correspondences between architecture and textiles, the study emerges from the reading of photographs, a swatch of Harris Tweed and curtain wall facade juxtaposed. In juxtaposing the fabric of the city with the weave of Harris Tweed the book charts an original course across a range of connected ideas and questions, combining many different themes, writers and disciplines. It presents integrated and innovative re-thinkings on a number of fundamental relationships, including correlations between body and building, word and image, and between the rural and the metropolitan, and the hand-crafted and the mass-reproduced. In doing so, it seeks to foreground the very interrelationship of surface and place, as it makes a claim for the relational nature of the world in which we live."
