THE ART AND SCIENCE OF EXPANDING OUR SENSORIUM

MICHEL VAN DARTEL & ALWIN DE ROOIJ

Unless you are a superhero, your perception of the world is limited by what the human senses can perceive. While these speculations were until now a subject for science fiction, recent insights into how perception works introduce unprecedented possibilities to make such ‘sensory augmentation’ reality. Scientists, artists and designers alike experiment with experimental interfaces that allow, for example, to ‘see’ with your skin or to sense the earth’s magnetic field through your body. This masterclass led by Alwin de Rooij (Tilburg University, Tilburg Center for Cognition and Communication) and Michel van Dartel (Avans University, Expertise Centre for Art and Design) intends to instigate a dialogue on this subject.

The following people will demonstrate works during this masterclass: Antal Ruhl, Hanna Schraffenberger, Mischa Daams, Bente van Melick and Mathijs Bontje

Tickets: € 15,- including lunch and STRP Biënnale Expo
