    Abstract

    This is the first comprehensive overview of the symbiotic relationship that exists between textiles and space, which explores 'textiles' in relation to the human body through the theme of 'haptic', the emotion and poetics of cloth, the textural qualities of light and narration, and so on, with the fundamental question of how contemporary art textiles contribute to interior space. This dissertation attempts to explore this rising infatuation through Tim Walker (fashion photographer), Caroline Broadhead (artist) and Kathryn Findlay (architect). Touching on three diverse disciplines begins to provide a wider understanding of art textiles in society.
