Transcript of The Changing Personal Space

The Changing Personal Space
Sight and Space
Strategy - 'A place of one's own power and will... an effort to delimit one's own place in the world bewitched by the invisible power of others'. (De Certeau 1984, p.35).
This is also a mastery of places through sight: Seeing the Whole where they eye can transform foreign forces into objects that can be observed, measured and controlled.
Power of Knowledge- the power to provide oneself with one's own space
I have the power to create my own

How then have glasses impacted my personal identity?
How can glasses so significantly impact the way I interact in my personal space?
How have glasses affected my interaction with my 'own space'. Those places where I can combine strategy and tactics to immerse myself within my own space?

Identity and Space
Cultural Studies - personal identity, individual identity and group identity.
Space is CULTURALLY PRODUCED, active and impacted upon.
Michel de Certeau - 'the practice of space' and the different ways to interpret the world and create meaning and context in our lives.

My Space - Cabarita Headland
Do my own interactions with space conform to a specific habitus; influenced by time, place, gender, education, values, society and culture of everyday life? (Bourdieu 1984)
The unconscious sense of 'finding one's place in the world'.
The construction of identity within a space.
How has this changed?
Class activity - a social cultural experiment.
Try to find someone you've never formally introduced yourself to in the classroom. DON'T Introduce yourself now! But sit next to each other and let's try something ... different :-)
