IN SENSORY AUGMENTATION
We cannot think of sensory augmentation without thinking about the body: the body allows, constrains, and maybe evolves together with sensory augmentation. Understanding the complexities of the link between the body and sensory augmentation is crucial from both a practical and theoretical perspective. Exploring the role of the body in sensory augmentation opens up a range of theoretical and practical concerns related to embodiment and the way we relate to the world.
In this session, we welcome presentations related to the link between body and sensory augmentation, tackling issues related to embodiment, experience, identity. Perspectives from arts, design, cognitive science, biomedical engineering, neurophysics, philosophy and other disciplines will be discussed.
