re:MAKING SENSE #3 – 23 Sept

Michel Witter invites you for the third session of the re:MakingSense symposium series arrowon sensory augmentation on the 23rd of September at 5-6.30pm BST.

This series of discussions aims to bring together the community of researchers, practitioners, artists and designers working on sensory augmentation. We seek to advance this interdisciplinary engagement in order to explore the plurality of perspectives on the modulation of human sensory and perceptual abilities. Discussing insights gained on the philosophical, ethical, creative, anthropological, scientific and technological aspects of research.

Part of the re:MakingSenses community is working towards conceptualizing, criticizing, and constructing meaning around sensory augmentation, and part is directly designing and building devices to augment senses.

Such work typically requires time, interdisciplinary knowledge, and various forms of input. During this session presents practitioners, students, and professors will present their work-in-progress in diverse directions, and will use the input and feedback from the participants and other speakers to make their ideas clearer, elicit useful feedback on early-stage work.

And, this session will also enable collaborations on ongoing projects with attendees!

Research Group: Situated Art and Design

Living in cities developed around data and acting within the inscrutable structure of our techno-society demands art and design that can help understand how we relate to these rapidly changing surroundings and to reflect on that relationship. The research group Situated Art and Design responds to this exigency by fostering a situated turn in art and design through a diverse portfolio of interdisciplinary research projects in partnership with academic and cultural partners, as well as with government and industry.
