U9 – From Visual Perception Towards Multisensory Experience

So what was my dissertation about again?

During the context part of my BA Graphic Design course, I researched the impact of visual as well as alternative sensatory impact, with the help of different philosophers such as Phenomenology and Michel Serres as well as psychologists and perception research. I evidenced my research through examples such as the Light Show at the Hayward Gallery in spring 2013, sound artist Jakob Kirkegaard, Amy Radcliffe’s Scento-Graphy project and the Imprimerie du Marais’ event Eat–Print–Love.

I wanted to make the obvious obviouser that design, and perception and awareness, shouldn’t be simply visual (and it isn’t) and accentuate the importance of sensatory impact and aware interaction of the person with the environment.
