We present Inner Space, an essay we have written in connection to the curatorship of the homonymous exhibition at the 2019 Lisbon Triennale. Inner Space is part of broader research that we are conducting for a few years through this website, our practice and teaching activity. We have defined Socks as “a nonlinear journey through faraway territories of human imagination”, and we wrote Inner Space to dig further into this expression, to try and understand what imagination, – specifically architectural imagination -, is and how it can take the form of an inhabitable territory. This attempt takes inspiration from the surrealist trope of turning mental realms into actual landscapes and from mnemonic techniques aimed at spatializing mental processes, like the “art of memory”.

Stachybotrys chartarum, aka black mould, is one of the nastiest guests you can find in your home. The microfungus grows inside damp buildings and produces toxic spores. Its presence in your home can affect your health and expose you to greater risks of suffering from respiratory problems, allergies or even immune system disorders.
The problem seems to be particularly common in London rented accommodations. Landlords are either too stingy or too sloppy to take the necessary measures to limit the moisture in the air. When they are not just plain greedy and let the flats deliberately rot so that tenants will move out and the property owner can renovate the building and turn it into lucrative Airbnb accommodations.
