|Abstract or Description:||
Surface Tensions, co-edited by Adamson and Dr Victoria Kelley, is a volume of 16 essays concerned with the theorising of ‘surface’. In the book, surfaces are discussed by an international range of writers, including historians, anthropologists, theoreticians and practitioners, as both historical evidence and zones of artistic experimentation. Subjects range widely across disciplines (topics include domestic maintenance; avant-garde fashion; the faking of antiques; postmodern architecture and design; and contemporary film costume). As a whole, the book provides insights into the whole lifecycle of objects, not just their condition when new.
