Increasingly, technology seems to be de-materializing our world. Yet our ideas and experiences -- both physical and cultural -- remain fundamentally patterned by the complex material interplay of brain, body, and world. With support from pioneering research in the cognitive and neurosciences, Sarah Robinson combines philosophy, poetry, and personal narrative to offer a poignant study of the many ways in which our built environment shapes us as significantly as we have shaped it. Nesting: Body, Dwelling, Mind explores how our very being is sculpted by our interactions in an environment that we ourselves have fashioned, making us our own greatest artifact. Includes an introduction by Juhani Pallasmaa.
