"Our house is our corner of the world...it is our very first universe"

Gaston Bachelard The Poetics of Space

The Poetics of Space is a phenomenological interrogation into the meaning of spaces in which Bachelard presents a psychic interpretation of "home" and ones prototypical experiences of personal space. Bachelard discusses the way our perceptions of shelter begin to delineate the very essence of how we think and imagine.  Inner Space, using this text as a starting point explores the symbolic meaning of home through memory, intimacy and experience.
