Living with LEGO: A fan’s re-interpretation of the interior domestic space
Source of Publication
The interconnectedness between an individual and the inhabited interior space is articulated through literature, philosophy, and critical theory. The interior, in theory as in practice, is understood even as dialectical where the domestic space is experienced. The role of fans as inhabitants of a space and their subjective fandom experience reflected through their specific expressions within the interior space are in focus. This study looks at aspects of the domestic environment with an emphasis on the collected items contained within to characterize fans’ attitudes toward the materiality of their objects of fandom. Fandom experience within the domestic interior is further explored in the context of the auto-ethnographic account of a life-long participant observer of the LEGO phenomenon, collector, and an academic-fan, where LEGO becomes a dioramic spectacle integrated into the living space. The study finally offers an externalizing fandom life-long experience and aesthetic preoccupations while creating a personalized interior.
