SENSING EXTENDED REALITIES Gardens – a Research-Creation project
We communicate, act and negotiate with and through our body. Digital technologies have led to fundamental changes of our physical presence. Data spaces, as representations of information, are almost intangible and invisible. Nevertheless, we fill these spaces with our communication, our images and behavior patterns. Abstract and disembodied traces remain of our daily routines and actions.
Our perception is changing, hence how do we construct our individual reality? Which perceptions will be sensitized, which will fade away and which yet unknown sensory sensations will stimulate us in the future? New senses might help us to become more efficient but they also instrumentalize us, focusing on certain abilities and perceptions. Augmentation and substitution of senses offer ways to experience known to all but forgotten and even new excitements. Expanded interfaces lead to constructions of new realities and interactions. How will they affect our well-being? Where are shortcomings to be balanced? And do we need mindfulness, meditation and deceleration again?
SENSING EXTENDED REALITIES focuses on people and their needs. Which multisensory stimuli are valuable in the context of recurring analog routines? How to develop senses in-between natural and technical perception, in-between the world of physical things and abstract data space? How to make the hidden visible again and re-sense the immaterial? How to understand our body as a social interface in relation to sociological and psychological questions?
