This experimental subject focuses on 'enclosure', drawing on relevant theory to examine the nature and construct of spaces we inhabit, to question where and how we live and work and what we do in between particularly in relation to the influence of context: the specific geographic, technological and scientific environment of the 'enclosure'. That we almost always live in the presence of material and emotional remnants of our past that are merging with visions of our future is given recognition. The application of systems and functional knowledge introduced in previous subjects, such as colour and lighting, are applied to investigate "the technology of experience".
