Organization has multiple layers in this thesis: organizing space (architecture), organizing objects (arrangement as gesture), organizing of a body both inherent (biological) and from outside (culture). I use these frameworks to discuss my research into interiors where design and art overlap. I will think about gaps between images and objects by exploring Merleau-Ponty’s phenomenology. I will think about performativity of space by adapting from Roger Caillois’ theories of mimicry. Through Adolf Loos's architectural planning method Raumplan, I will consider ways in which sculpture is conceived of. To me organization is a constellation of concepts that embody various methods of working and thinking.
