How can we stretch our senses to inhabit earthly worlds at other scales?
How shall we translate the scientific perceptions apparatus to common sense (and back)? The Stretching Senses School festival exhibits site-specific Virtual Reality artworks building on ongoing research at the cluster of excellence Matters of Activity. Envisioned as a long-term co-educative collaboration between multimodal anthropology and immersive interaction art, the project shifts the attention of the visitors to the possibilities of digitally staging the embedded of humans and other earthly beings.
