Propriospective    : Tim Gruchy

Proprioception, otherwise known as kinaesthesia, is†our body's ability to sense movement, action, and location. With the rapid development of Extended, Augmented and Virtual Realities, our very sense of ourselves and how we are in the world is increasingly becoming a crucial question, enmeshed in a new set of possibilities. Science tells us much about how our bodies, but perhaps less so, how our mindsí function in these regards. However most people still prefer to think in a four-century-old Newtonian model of reality. Over time, art has developed a sophisticated understanding and re-presentation of ourselves in the world. Propriospective - using a combination of realtime processing, mathematical and camera generated imagery setting out to make a multiuser interactive environment that both informs and questions how we think about ourselves and the world we inhabit - confirming and gently disrupting our complex sensory relations.
