Your perception of the world is limited by what human senses can perceive. While speculations on expanding our sensorium were until now a subject for science fiction, recent insights into how perception works introduce unprecedented possibilities to make such ‘sensory augmentation’ reality. Scientists, artists and designers alike experiment with interfaces that allow, for example, to ‘see’ with your skin or to sense the earth’s magnetic field through your body.

In this Meet Up we will get together to explore new ways in which we can augment, substitute or amplify our senses. Alwin de Rooij (Tilburg University, Tilburg Center for Cognition and Communication) and Michel van Dartel (Avans University, Expertise Centre for Art and Design) will instigate a dialogue on this subject, after which artistic and scientific researchers are invited to demonstrate a range of sensory interfaces.

If you would like to demonstrate your own interface, please email michel@v2.nl. To register for the Meet Up please email pr@v2.nl. Participation is free of charge.
