ongoing series of site-based social and ecological engagements asking: What is wellness and how is it determined?
Sensory Diagnostics defines the act of noticing as an embodied, mindful, multi-sensory experience. To know a site (a body, a place, and everything existing in between) requires participation in an ongoing dialogue, a commitment to long-term, deep listening and observation. By practicing new old and unexpected ways of generating and communicating knowledge, we generate a deeper awareness of relationship between our bodies and the spaces we inhabit, and dream solutions for the ongoing care of these intersecting ecologies.
