Becoming ‘Sensicle’

September 27 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm BST

In this workshop on futurist mobilities we will use creative methods from dance and art practice to imagine a future…

… where vehicles and sensing human bodies have become ‘sensicle’

As vehicles are equipped with more and more sensors and drivers ensconced in them, humans and vehicles are undergoing sensory transformations. They are becoming ‘sensicles’ – but what does it mean to be ‘sensicle’? How do human sensory capabilities fare in this transformation?  The idea of this workshop is to explore sensory experiences of transport, of driving, riding, walking in different environments and social contexts.

We will use play, and cardboard models, dance and art practice to explore what ‘sensicle’ might mean in practice. How would a more human-centred concept of ‘sensicles’ change concepts of navigation and urban planning? Read more here …

Places are limited. Please register here.
