This seminar is an introduction to practices of sensory urbanism and an exploration of multi-disciplinary and creative strategies for undertaking research. City spaces produce extraordinary and habitual ways of interaction – seen in embodiment, sensations, perceptions, identity – that in turn produce the ways in which we characterize the urban – visual, textual and other forms of representation. In this course, we will be concerned with the process of “making and unmaking” of place/space, taking into account the entire spectrum of sensory engagement of our bodies with the environment, through which we ourselves are made into urban inhabitants. We will actively engage in this poiesis – a reflective and creative construction -- through close reading, experiments, performance, listening, walking, and a deep exchange and intersection with your artistic practice.Pathway: Visual Studies
