The title of the exhibition is a play on words meaning both a person’s inner voice and the personal truths revealed through choices of interior décor.  Just as with the clothes we wear so much is revealed about our character through the way we decorate and furnish our homes indicative of social status, taste, anxieties and aspirations.  As a literary device the Interior monologue creates a window into the mental processes of a character at the stage of precognition before the formation of coherent sequential speech.

The project will invite creative writers from the USW English department to contribute stream of consciousness writing to juxtapose with the images contained in the exhibition.

The contributors as follows:
Mel Smith
Barrie Llewelyn
Judith Goldsmith
Cathy Dreyer
Dale Hay
Sara Robles
Colum Sanson Regan
Tony Curtis

Susan Akins
Mererid Velios
Chris Hopkins
Sharon Magill
Nick Jenkins
Luz Erika Chick
Jessica Greenway
