See Yourself Sensing: Redefining Human Perception

With cybernetics, prosthetics, robotics, nanotechnology and neuroscience altering the way we perceive and experience space, the body has re-emerged as an important architectural site, revealing it’s astonishing potential as a creative medium. See Yourself Sensing: Redefining Human Perception captures the fascinating relationship between design, the body, the senses, and technology.

Written by New York City filmmaker and architect, Madeline Schwartzman, the book examines work from the last 50 years by artists, architects and designers who have been experimenting with the boundaries of our senses, changing the way we experience the world.

It presents the work of key innovators in this field from Haus-Rucker-Co.’s mind-bending headgear to Rebecca Horn’s mythical wearable structures, Stelarc’s robotic body extensions and Carsten Höller’s neurally interactive installations, as well as the work of artists who have emerged in the last five years, like Internet sensation Daito Manabe, Hyungkoo Lee and Michael Burton.

Naked Shapes

Naked Shapes

Naked Shapes, currently showing at Domaine de Boisbuchet, presents Japanese articles of daily use, all made of aluminium, that industrial designer Seiji Onishi, gallerist Keiichi Sumi and graphic designer Nobuhiro Yamaguchi, have assembled over the years.
