Scaling Sensory Experiences. Across Dance, Occupational Therapy and Urban Design

Abstract : The disciplines of urban design, occupational therapy and dance share an interest in how sensory experience and human movement impact the way atmospheres are produced. The global pandemic has brought about radical shifts in our sensory experience of the world. Bodily gestures both big and small participate in the creation of unspoken yet acutely felt atmospheres that invoke new modes of attention. The notion of ’scaling sensory experiences’ emphasizes that scale is a non-static continually shifting condition that connects bodies and environments. This research calls for a nuanced understanding of other disciplinary worlds in order to plant the seeds for renewed sensory modes of designing, living and dancing that are much needed as we contemplate our post-pandemic atmosphere.
