Guiliana Bruno's Atlas of Emotion: Journeys in Art, Architecture and Film (2002), introduces the idea of "traveling domestic" in art and film. For Bruno, "traveling domestic" involves seeing and representing the home not as the static antithesis of travel but as a space that itself engenders voyage and invites exploration; to "travel domestic" is to approach the home as curious and risky rather than banal and safe. This type of travel holds special significance for considerations of gender both because it is staged within a stereotypically feminine sphere and because it unsettles the home's ability to function as a bulwark against turbulent public space.
