We present Inner Space, an essay we have written in connection to the curatorship of the homonymous exhibition at the 2019 Lisbon Triennale. Inner Space is part of broader research that we are conducting for a few years through this website, our practice and teaching activity. We have defined Socks as “a nonlinear journey through faraway territories of human imagination”, and we wrote Inner Space to dig further into this expression, to try and understand what imagination, – specifically architectural imagination -, is and how it can take the form of an inhabitable territory. This attempt takes inspiration from the surrealist trope of turning mental realms into actual landscapes and from mnemonic techniques aimed at spatializing mental processes, like the “art of memory”.
The book looks freely into cognitive science, digital culture, typological thought, image atlases, archives and collections. It is deliberately incomplete and open-ended like -we believe- such research needs to be and provides a good framework for the work we have been doing for some years through this website. It is not a kind of “Socks turned into a book.” Still, we think the two works are part of the same journey into the understanding of human imagination. We hope you will enjoy reading it and will be interested in discussing it with us.

The book is part of a series of five, in relationship with the five main exhibitions of the Lisbon Triennale 2019, “The Poetics of Reason”. Three books are already out, the others will be soon. More info on Book Series – Trienal de Lisboa 2019

how do you get the book?
Ordered two copies of this book through email orders, but got only one. Have been waiting for the other one to get delivered over three weeks, haven’t received it until now, sent three emails, no reply at all. So DISAPPOINTED.

Hello Jieun, we answered you over on our facebook’s page.
Here’s the answer:
“Hello Jieun, thanks for buying the books. Unfortunately we don’t directly manage the purchase and shipment of the books, but we can relay your problem to the Lisbon Triennale people. We will do that asap. Hope your issue will be solved, all the best, Fosco and Mariabruna”
Hello guys, I have a similar issue with not getting my order (at all).. Somehow i got a different address at one point…
I tried to get a copy of the book-series or magazines
So I got in touch with partners responsible for those – “artbooks.es” (if correct, looking back i don’t know how I got this link to be honest, maybe it was scam, in a message here, i have more and more reason to believe so)
I ordered and purchased there with them all copies.
However, the last I heard from them, is that there was some issue with mailing and, although trying to stay in contact, I haven’t heard back since, now more than a month ago – I was wondering if you could help me deal with this issue. If you happen to have more possibility for communication / a strong contact.. (if there is one? or was there some scam here i fell for somehow? can people just drop and delete messages informing you to buy a product somewhere here) – I don’t know if there was an address of the publishers sales department stated here before, was it different/ or did I over see it and really get scammed in some message?
Because I only exchanged messages with a person named ‘carlos semeron’ via this email “firstname.lastname@example.org” from a business called SMALL PROJECTS SL from Barcelona…
And now can’t reach anyone anymore… Any chance of assistance?
I Thank you very kindly.

sorry to hear about this issue as well. We are sending a mail to the Triennale association. It seems to have worked with previous analogous problems.
Please let us know in some days if you have been assisted.
