Performance, fashion and the modern interior : from the Victorians to today by Fiona Fisher( Book )

17 editions published between 2011 and 2013 in English and held by 291 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Performance, fashion and the modern interior" examines the interior as a 'stage' upon which modern life and lifestyles are consciously fashioned and 'performed', and from which modern identities are projected by and through design. Scholars from Europe, Canada, America and Australia present a range of interior environments - domestic interiors, sets for stage and film, exhibition spaces, art galleries, hotel lobbies, cafes and retail spaces - to explore each as an intersection of fashion, lifestyle and performance. Sharing the thesis that the fashionably dressed body and the interior can be seen as part of the same creative and expressive continuum, the essays highlight the ways in which interiors can give shape to and dramatise modern life
British design : tradition and modernity after 1948 by Christopher Breward( )

8 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"British Design brings together a collection of essays from international scholars, designers and journalists, offering new perspectives on the significance of British design in the last sixty years. The book reacts and responds to the changes that have taken place in the recent history of British Design, with case studies looking at, among others, domestic interiors, retail spaces, schools, universities and objects of transport. Chapters include investigations into a variety of significant historical and social moments from the rise and fall of the English Country House style and the Brutalist architectural boom of the 1960s to the modern shopping space and key contemporary designers such as Thomas Heatherwick. British Design provides the contemporary study of the developments within British design and provides new criticism and analysis on how design, from post-war Britain to today, has developed and changed how we live and interact with the spaces in which we live"--
The Routledge companion to design studies by Penny Sparke( )

13 editions published between 2016 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Since the 1990s, in response to dramatic transformations in the worlds of technology and the economy, design - a once relatively definable discipline, complete with a set of sub-disciplines - has become unrecognizable. Consequently, design scholars have begun to address new issues, themes and sub-disciplines such as: sustainable design, design for well-being, empathic design, design activism, design anthropology, and many more. The Routledge Companion to Design Studies charts this new expanded spectrum and embraces the wide range of scholarship relating to design - theoretical, practice-related and historical - that has emerged over the last four decades. Comprised of forty-three newly-commissioned essays, the Companion is organized into the following six sections: Defining Design: Discipline, Process ;Defining Design: Objects, Spaces; Designing Identities: Gender, Sexuality, Age, Nation; Designing Society: Empathy, Responsibility, Consumption, the Everyday * Design and Politics: Activism, Intervention, Regulation; Designing the World: Globalization, Transnationalism, Translation
Designing the British post-war home : Kenneth Wood, 1948-1968 by Fiona Fisher( )

13 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 144 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Designing the British Post-War Home Fiona Fisher explores the development of modern domestic architecture in Britain through a detailed study of the work of the successful Surrey-based architectural practice of Kenneth Wood. Wood's firm is representative of a geographically distinct category of post-war architectural and design practice - that of the small private practice that flourished in Britain's expanding suburbs after the removal of wartime building restrictions. Such firms, which played an important role in the development of British domestic design, are currently under-represented within architectural histories of the period. The private house represents an important site in which new spatial, material and aesthetic parameters for modern living were defined after the Second World War. Within a British context, the architect-designed private house remained an important 'vehicle for the investigation of architectural ideas' by second generation modernist architects and designers. Through a series of case study houses, designed by Wood's firm, the book reconsiders the progress of modern domestic architecture in Britain and demonstrates the ways in which architectural discourse and practice intersected with the experience, performance and representation of domestic modernity in post-war Britain"--

Emotion Recognition Correlates With Social-Neuropsychiatric Dysfunction in Huntington's Disease( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Abstract: Objectives: People with Huntington's disease (HD) experience poor social quality of life, relationship breakdown, and social withdrawal, which are mediated to some extent by socially debilitating neuropsychiatric symptoms, such as apathy and disinhibition. Social cognitive symptoms, such as impaired emotion recognition, also occur in HD, however, the extent of their association with these socially debilitating neuropsychiatric symptoms is unknown. Our study examined the relationship between emotion recognition and symptom ratings of apathy and disinhibition in HD. Methods: Thirty-two people with premanifest or symptomatic-HD completed Part 1 of The Awareness of Social Inference Test (TASIT), which is a facial emotion recognition task. In addition, we obtained severity ratings for apathy and disinhibition on the Frontal Systems Behavior Scale (FrSBe) from a close family member. Our analyses used motor symptom severity as a proxy for disease progression. Results: Emotion recognition performance was significantly associated with family-ratings of apathy, above and beyond their shared association with disease severity. We found a similar pattern for disinhibition ratings, which fell short of statistical significance. As expected, worse emotion recognition performance was correlated with higher severity in FrSBe symptom ratings. Conclusions: Our findings suggest that emotion recognition abilities relate to key socially debilitating neuropsychiatric symptoms in HD. Our results help to understand the functional significance of emotion recognition impairments in HD, and may have implications for the development of remediation programs aimed at improving patients' social quality of life.
