About Faculty of Senses
Faculty of Senses is a series of Performances, talks and discussions. The series focus on topics around our human bodies as mechanical systems working together with our consciousness and sensory apparatus. At the meetings we look into techniques, methods, rituals and tools that can be used to train our consciousness and shed light on its limitation incl. our ability to perceive and our (limited) ability to perceive on an interhuman level.
Through this activity, we wish to establish an open community of people interested in this field. A goal on the way is to open sources the process of the artistic ideas for shared inspiration. For each meeting we’ll search for particular locations that can contribute with a special framing to the presented works and presentations
Two worksessions are planned now:

After considering different options for crowdfunding, I found that the best way would be to ask for irregular donations or recurring donations, rather than go for a crowdfunding campaign that requires a lot of extra work in advertising and coming up with additional rewards. So I’ve made a choice to use LiberaPay and Ko-Fi* which allow for small donations, without a push to a deadline. I’ve created a support page to provide you with links and to explain why I’m asking for donations.
*note that I won’t be buying coffee: the writing of the book is fuelled by tea ;).
In 2020 the book will finally get together, I have mapped out my year of writing! I’m looking forward to an intensive year of researching, writing and editing - and collaboration with SuperPosition for the graphical side of the work. In addition I will go to Norway (Oslo, Trondheim, Bergen) to give presentations about the research and work with artists there on the topic of mapping. Since I will be traveling by train (great place to be writing!), I will also make a stop in Copenhagen and Malmö. Two further work sessions are planned in the Netherlands at V2_ (Rotterdam) in April and at Splendor (Amsterdam) in August. For a full overview of the events, see the agenda page. Links to detailed information will be linked there. People have asked me whether it still makes sense to fill in the expression of interest form or the survey - and yes it does! The information from the forms will help me to inform you when pre-orders can be made or to tell you about how you can otherwise (financially) support the book.
