Module Space - Movement
The module developed for the University of Applied Sciences and Arts in Coburg wanted to counteract the bias towards the focused vision as argued by Juhani Pallasmaa in The Eyes of the Skin (2005) redirecting the attention to the other modes of embodied experiences of space. The participants are thus invited to explore space through the different senses (exceeding the five generally considered and in line with Michel Serres’ notion of the senses as not working in separate spheres). The module alternates philosophical inputs, practical, embodied experimentations, and collective recollections to then integrate this knowledge in a planning exercise.
