Beyond Human Perception | Sencity Festival 17 Sept 2022

Caradt researchers Michel Witter, Eva Fotiadi and Antal Ruhl will be at Sencity festival September 17th 2022 in Utrecht. There they will be showing some recent work and prototypes. Michel Witter will also, as part of his research, conduct a study on embodied experience in people with various sensory impairments.

Experience what it’s like to see with your hands, or feel how you can experience music by touching a porcelain surface. At Sencity you can take part in a scientific experiment into differences in sensory experiences. This collective of designers, researchers and artists explores how we can increase our perception beyond what we can perceive naturally. At the event you can try out some prototypes from projects by Michel Witter, Eva Fotiadi (The OtherAbilities) and Antal Ruhl. Plus you get the unique opportunity to contribute to science by experiencing the festival with others while simultaneously indicating on paper how “it” all feels.

Sencity festival will be on Saturday september 17th 18:30 in Utrecht.

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.
