Using different interfaces, we convey our thoughts about domesticity in pandemic times, interpreting architecture as an agent or as a mediator between cultural reality and collectivity. The selected pieces have the potential of creating affective contexts deliberately adapted to our emotional needs. Accordingly, we propose an exhibition circumstance that highlights the interactions, rather than each piece specific physical materialisation, which leads us to speak about notions such as self-conception, recycling, techno-architecture, and free occupation.
