"Enhanced sensing" is a conference and open-call aiming to create a frame for discussion on cognition and on human-technology Interaction, particularly in relation to movement and sound.
"Enhanced sensing" is a platform initiated by the Sentire project to exchange ideas and experiences. We welcome any proper investigation on the topic.
Sentire started as a performance series where proximity and touch events between the participants are transformed into sound, allowing a deep sensory experience. Sentire is now an ongoing cross-disciplinary research and it aims to develop an interactive sound system and a method that enhances cognitive sensory abilities of its users.
Cognition is now considered a dynamic interplay of individual bodily and environmental processes, with the brain as a mediator of that interplay (Fuchs, 2011)
How can interactive technology (such as Sentire) contribute to this interplay and enhance human sensing?
In which way can interactive technology develop cognitive sensory abilities?
As part of our discussions, we are pleased to have different researchers who have experienced and investigated the work of Sentire with different approaches. The result of these studies will be presented at the conference:
The main goal of these events is to create a platform for networking and shaping the community of people working in between music, arts and science. Motivated by this cross-disciplinary need, we are happy to announce an open-call for short presentations of projects or studies about human-technology interaction, particularly in relation to movement and sound. The call is addressed to a wide range of researchers and practitioners including academics, artists, musicians, dancers and movement researchers, cognitive scientists, philosophers, and inventors.
