Sensable Space is an exploration into our changing perception of what is commonly referred to as personal space: while this terrain seems to describe an area with invisible boundaries surrounding a person’s body, we visualised this psychological construct with the help of range sensors to record everyday moments and translated the invisible. Simultaneously, Sensable Space comments on the changing meaning of personal space as data has expanded our physical existence into the digital realm. It may expand or shrink depending on personality and cultural background as well as the physical settings.
The project was produced in collaboration with Cameron Bowen.
