Kinaesthesia (noun, awareness of the position and movement of the parts of the body by means of sensory organs in the muscles and joints | from Greek kinein ‘to move’ + aisthēsis ‘sensation’).
Workshop Summary: "In August 2019, international students and professionals gathered in France for a workshop with mischer’traxler, contributing to the Designmuseum Gent's Kleureyck exhibition. The focus was on exploring the relationship between color and human sensory perception, particularly in terms of movement. The process involved matching colors with qualities, transforming them into movement-related adjectives, designing scenarios reflecting specific colors through movement, and recording participant performances. The workshop, set in the Domaine de Boisbuchet, emphasized creative freedom within a social and environmental context. Notably, the text draws parallels between the workshop's themes and the van Eyck's Ghent altarpiece, highlighting nature and community as central motifs."
