Abstract

This thesis argues that the architecture of the contemporary shopping mall is set up through the devices of fiction. The aim is to consider the way in which the structure of the shopping mall might behave as an organisational device for other kinds of fiction. The thesis examines the fictional nature of everyday experience for consumers, as well as looking at the substantial body of fiction by Australia writers and filmmakers that is relative to the contemporary representation of the shopping mall.
