In A Topology of daily Constellations, Georges Teyssot considers the intrusion of the general public sphere into deepest house, and the blurring of notions of inside, privateness, and intimacy in our societies. He proposes that we reconsider layout by way of a brand new definition of the practices of lifestyle. Teyssot considers the door, the window, the reflect, and the display as thresholds or interstitial areas that divide the realm in : the surface and the interior. Thresholds, he indicates, paintings either as markers of limitations and as bridges to the outside. The stark selection among boundary and bridge creates a center area, an in-between that holds the potential of exchanges and encounters. If the edge not separates public from deepest, and if we will now not give some thought to the home as a bastion of privateness, Teyssot asks, does the physique nonetheless inhabit the home -- or does the home, evolving right into a sequence of microdevices, inhabit the body?
