Finding home- Understanding the relationship between home and body
University of Borås, Swedish School of Textiles.
2013 (English)Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor)Student thesis
Abstract [en]

This work is based on the results of my research regarding the human relationship to a home. It started with me thinking about that I have to move away from my home soon. Living here has been a slow gathering of things and furniture. As a result I have a home I feel completely safe in. This made me wonder what it is that I need to give me that feeling, the feeling of home. The aim of this work is to understand the relationship between home and body To gain knowledge of the subject I have studied literature on the phenomenon of a home, how different from each other homes can be and how some people manage without having a home. Reading about these things made me realise how big the subject was. I found so much material that I could work with, but I felt as if I had gotten lost in my search for answers. Therefore I went back to the starting point- the feeling of home. To get some answers it made sense to me to try and portray that feeling of home on a body. This work is the result of me finding a home in clothing.
