This participant did not see any hallucinatory visuals. It was noted the participant blinked a lot - almost with the regularity of a pulse. This could have an adverse effect on the illusory process.
Extract from notes on a day testing the Autoscope with Photographer Andrew Brooks. Images are Screenshots from VR Google perspective "...This particular ascent provides a satisfying sense of progress for the user of the autoscope. Its steep angle means that the future terrain is more easily predicted underfoot. [As noted previously, to descend is more an act of risk or trust] The rocky unevenness is severe enough to provide a footing at without needing to be too selective. This affords a certain level of bodily autonomy. Decisions about where to place the feet and sticks, means progress, can be made relatively quickly, leaving perceptual space to appreciate and absorb the other less noticed senses. .." "...Nearing the end of the walk and beginning to feel more fatigued, the
Documentation from the [Re]Mapping perception workshop at LJMU 2 May 2019 Here is the original invitation... A workshop for artists/researchers engaging in a wide range of practice-based and artistic research methodologies. It aims to explore interdisciplinary methods through a series of provocations in embodied multisensory experience, designed to enhance our perception and self-awareness. The workshop provides an open space for participants from different fields to meet, communicate findings, share paradigms, and explore the value of sensory perception and awareness in our research. It also offers an opportunity to meet Madeline Schwartzman and gain insight into the works discussed in her new book See Yourself X: Human Futures Expanded. Her public lecture follows the workshop [ Places can be booked here https://www.eventbrite.com/o/antony-hall-19862154602 ] [Re]Action Lab is an
When I was visiting a French laboratory (CNRS) back in 2007 to do some research on electrogenic fish, I noticed a sign on a laboratory door saying “Expérience en cours” (the actual meaning being ‘experiment in progress’) but this formed a thought in my head: whose experience? That of the entity being experimented upon ( In this case the living brain of an electric fish) or the human performing the experiment? At the time I was researching the behaviour of these fish and recording electrical signals from the living fish in aquariums) I think this was the nexus point for that work, and the way it developed (the Enki interface which commented on the role animals play in research) and
