This experimental subject examines a broad definition of the human body's encounters with 'enclosure', questioning it as a construct that is imagined, fantasised, imposed, physical and/or ephemeral. For the purposes of developing an understanding of the human's complex relationship with enclosure, students are required to engage with relevant theory, events, encounters to critical review. Students will question spatial elements from internal and external skins, to internal elements such as furniture, lighting and the like. Through written submissions or creative production, students will individually or collectively define and speculate on the human experience and “enclosure”.
