How might permanent nomadism give rise to new states of being?
It is the year 2040, and new laws on nomadism have been passed where home can be anywhere. CELAND is an micronation that claims the Charleston estate as part of its territory. The nation stages and celebrates notions of privacy as the possibility of freedom.
In the future, the boundaries between work and domestic life are no longer clearly defined. And privacy doesn’t mean being alone in a space, it is a critique on the idea of co-inhabiting, and collective dwelling. The existence of micro-society challenge domestication of society; the patriarchal logic of domestic space, and modern neighbourhood ecology.
Using tent as the housing typology, spaces are self-sufficient, shared ownership, liberation from gender roles, blurring the boundaries between private and public, live and work, sleep and eat. The proposal allows people who can’t afford to rent or own a property to be in the state of ‘permanent nomadism’.
