Homing interview with Nathan Lauster
(University of British Columbia)
Conducted by Paolo Boccagni
“Home is developed mostly through personal attachments, first of all between an infant and one or more adult figures. It is fundamentally a matter of moving back and forth between a very familiar, routinized and secure base, and an external environment to be explored. One of these poles is the basis of what we can understand as home, as a generalizable human experience. There is a foundational relationship of providing a secure base, which is probably generalizable”.
