SENSORY ARTS AND DESIGN. Ed. by Ian Heywood. Bloomsbury Academic, Bloomsbury Publishing, London, 2017. Sensory Studies. ISSN 2052-3092. 274 pp. with 50 ills. 24 x 16 cm. LC 2016-38778 ISBN 9781474280198 In English.
Publisher's description: Artists, designers and researchers are increasingly seeking new ways to understand and explore the creative and practical significance of the senses. This ground-breaking book brings art and design into the field of sensory studies for the first time, providing a clear introduction to the field and outlining important developments and new directions. A compelling exploration of both theory and practice, Sensory Arts and Design brings together a wide variety of examples from contemporary art and design which share a sensory dimension in their development or user experience. Divided into three parts, the book examines the design applications of new technology with sensing capacities; the role of the senses in creating new imaginative environments; and the significance of the senses within different cultural practices. The thirteen chapters cover a highly diverse range of issues -- from urban landscapes, soundscapes and cities at night, to 'immersive' sensory artworks, multisensory perception in painting, and the relationship between vision and smell.
