Black Interior Spatial Thought is both a text and sculptural system that proposes a geometric response to ideas of Black interiority. The interior is the inner life and imaginary. It is the space of deep thought, resonance, and affect. This project proposes an architectural method based on Black interior spatial conditions: urban (communal), home (private), and performance (public) spaces. A system that is both a speculative and unfixed typology for everyday Black movement and cultural production.
