The insatiable desire for one’s own space, which ensures human freedom, is a universal phenomenon. Anthropologist John S. Allen said that as humans we are a species of ‘homebodies’. The disposition of a human to possess space might be an intense instinct naturally inherent in us, along with the shapes of the ‘house’ that humankind has embodied over the last two million years. 

In Bubble in a Bubble, Dahseul Jung departs from the fortress she created as a child and turns to explain the human instinct to inhabit space. Through interviews with people from different backgrounds, Dahseul presents various perspectives and diverse thoughts on the meaning and method of forming a ‘personal space’.
