Conceptualising Kinesthesia – Making Movement Palpable

Wendy and Lise Hansen presented a paper entitled Conceptualising Kinesthesia – Making Movement Palpable at the European Academy of Design conference in Rome http://www.designfornext.org/index.html. The motivation for the paper, and a new network of collaborators is to reconnect with the sensuous, experiential nature of movement, to visualize data in a move away from the conceptual and concrete towards a more subjective, expressive medium. Rather than perceiving data as remote and dispassionate, we are interested in addressing a gap in the research that considers movement as autotelic, flowing in response to a heightened bodily and kinesthetic awareness.
