Sensoriality Workshop Series – Session 2: Proprioception
Fevereiro 5 @ 4:00 pm - Abril 16 @ 7:00 pm CET
About the Series:
This workshop series bridges the artistic community, the neuroscientists, and the general public. EDGE e.V. has collaborated with the Arts Section of the MIND Members Association to propose a series of workshops titled Sensoriality: an Immersive Approach to Art and Neuroscience through our Senses.
In this series, artists and neuroscientists make a joint effort to unfold the complexity of our sensory perceptions while at the same time trying to stimulate them. Therefore, artistic references and the artistic practice itself, together with the scientific research and its divulgation are the essential tools offered in this series.
The participants can experience how knowledge can be transferred in its natural character- dynamically, where art pieces open a free communication space between the observer and object, and in which their creative skills will be triggered.
Through diverse and immersive sessions, we are going to open up a playful space for Science, sensorial perception and creativity, to blur the border between the claimed disciplines.
Session 2: Proprioception
- Neuroscience: Corinna Kühnapfel // Ian Erik Stewart
- Art: Julia Schneider/ Eliana Araque
Also known as the secret 6th sense and often referred to as kinaesthesia, proprioception describes the sense of self-movement and body position.
How do we perceive the world? How do we draw the borders between the inner and the outer? What is the difference between Self- touch and the touch of a stranger? Which role do space and movement as well as the altered states of positioning and touch play in the assessment of our senses?
Limited spaces (20) for the in-person events. It will also be streamed live.
Participants can sign up for individual sessions, or purchase an attendance pack. For MIND Members, there is an entry on donation.
