This post is based on my book recently published, titled A Private Sphere (Polity Press). I wrote the book to talk about newer civic habits that are developing; civic habits that frequently fly under the radar and do not ‘count’ as citizenship. Here is a short preview, along with some images provided by Studio Olafur Eliasson. I am a fan of his work, and it has helped me think through the concept of A Private Sphere. He was kind enough to let us use it in the book.
