Sensory perception is closely tied to individual memory-building and cultural conditioning; with this in mind, how can the sensory experience of space be considered when designing for and occupied by the general public? Further, how would the inclusion of embodied knowledge into the “objectivist” paradigm inflect your field of research? Does moving away from this dichotomy bring into focus something about the human experience or is it simply a distraction?No matter your discipline, if your work, research, practice or general interests are concerned with the sensorial attributes of a discipline, the affective experience of space, architecture as a register of memory and identity, etc., please join us for the conversation!
When communicating scientific research to a broader public, why does the narrative ordinarily center around ‘a problem’? This has the effect of tying the work to negative issues within policy, economy, culture, etc. in order to augment its perceived relevance. How can various ways of communicating scientific information using the language of other fields (ie: art, social sciences, etc.) make this a more positive message? Can these methods enhance or alter how science is weighed or used in making decisions? At what point during scientific research should other fields become involved?No matter your discipline, if your work, research, practice or general interests are concerned with science communication, the expansion or redefinition of a scientific community, the impact of science upon other disciplinary spheres, etc., please join us for the conversation!
