Synergistic States: new research explores human/sensorium/material relationships


What happens when sensorium technologies are used in conjunction with sensing technologies to connect people with deeper sensory experiences relative to materiality and space? What is the current state of human/material perception relative to advanced architectural technology? What sensory experiences are possible and how are the designed and deployed?

This project based research responds to these questions by expanding on, comparing, and critiquing a series of small scale projects created during a controlled workshop in an academic setting. The projects focus on relationships between technology and human sensory experience relative to three specific material engagements in a controlled architectural setting. A collaboration with Andrea Macruz, Ahmed Abdelnaby.
