Responding to the theme of our habitat, we chose to work with the theory of proxemics. “Proxemics” is a type of non-verbal communication, specifically the study of the use of human space, Coined by anthropologist Edward T. Hall. The theory looks at not only the way humans interact with space and how it interferes with interpersonal interactions but how space is organised within place and community. We formed this idea from our “habitats” as our place was drastically different from each other from urban to sub-urban and rural.
Proxemics features four zones, intimate, personal, social and public. We each choose a category and focused on what they mean as a whole and personally. We communicated this though our own individual approaches, the idea that these spaces fluctuate depending on the person was the direction we decided to take as it accurately portrays proxemics fluid nature.
