Highly recommend See Yourself Sensing for studio classes Used as a text for my Advanced Sculpture class proved to be immensely successful stimulated dialogue, engaged students to work beyond conventions and stimulated originative work It is an excellent aid to understanding the potential use of all facets of technology and its impact on the viewer s sense perceptions If you are looking to expand the student knowledge base of current artists, foster conceptual thought and incorporate technology this is it Did you know that we can see with our tongue Or that we can plug our nervous system directly into a computer 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 its astonishing potential as a creative medium See Yourself Sensing Redefining Human Perception is an explosive and unique survey that captures the fascinating relationship between design, the body, the senses, and technology A timely discussion with cutting edge design, See Yourself Sensing 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 The book explores the work of both established and upcoming artists, including internet sensation Daito Manabe, Korean artist Hyungkoo Lee, Lawrence Malstaf and collectives such as realities united and Viennese based Gelitin, and figures of worldwide acclaim, such as Ann Hamilton, Ernesto Neto, Carsten Holler, Olafur Eliasson and Rebecca Horn. i was hoping for a bit technical information, details about what the subjects were going through would have been nice. Very weird and very unique It s like seeing a Sensation and Perception book in actuality. See Yourself Sensing was enormously successful in my Architecture studio class for first year students The book s wide ranging scope, cutting across disciplines and eras, is supported by thoughtful and provocative writing by Schwartzman My students were able to approach it from so many angles while finding a common thread in the intertwining of technology, perception and the politics of the body There was also a freshness about the book that definitely appealed to and challenged my young students, bringing the body in to Architecture See Yourself Sensing would be an asset in almost any design or art course especially ones concerning interdisciplinary approaches Highly recommended.
