Abstract [en]

It was suggested that dirt was a way of falling away from perfection and through introducing or allowing dirt you could avoid the sterile and lifeless. A ephemeral and intangible entity, dirt is, by its nature, an elusive creature.

This intangibility encouraged me to draw a clearer definition for myself of what dirt meant. If dirt was not limited to patina and grime how could it be understood in terms of design. This is the essence of my thesis.
