Editorial Reviews

Review

"Exploring the relationship between the body, design and technology, the book is perplexing and thought-provoking." Aesthetica Magazine

"[A] stimulating survey of body-related art and design." The Architectural Review

"There are plenty of works to illustrate each chapter, many of which i had never heard about and was therefore enthusiastic to encounter. But it is also a well-paced, well-researched essay about the impact technologies are having on the architecture of our senses." We Make Money Not Art Blog

"The lavishly photographed, beautifully designed tome presents work 'at the forefront of investigation' - in architecture, fine art, design, cybernetics, and neuroscience…The objects in See Yourself Sensing are quite literally mind-blowing." Bernard Magazine

"…a tour de force, bursting with insights." David Howes: Director of the Concordia University Sensoria Research Team

This Fall Black Dog Publishing released Madeline Schwartzman's weird and wonderful book, See Yourself Sensing: Redefining Human Perception, a ten inch by nine inch paperback survey of artists and designers exploring the relationship between the senses and technology over the last fifty years.

With neuroscientists, nanotechnologists and computer engineers rapidly inventing new sense altering technologies, See Yourself Sensing, feels very much in the zeitgeist. The book explores the work of both upcoming and established artists, such as, Tim Hawkinson, Olafur Eliasson and Rebecca Horn as well as collectives such as realities:united and Gelitin, who have mined these new technologies for their own practices.

i was hoping for a bit more technical information, details about what the subjects were going through would have been nice.

"See Yourself Sensing" was enormously successful in my Architecture studio class for first year students. The book's wide ranging scope, cutting across disciplines and eras, is supported by thoughtful and provocative writing by Schwartzman. My students were able to approach it from so many angles while finding a common thread in the intertwining of technology, perception and the politics of the body. There was also a freshness about the book that definitely appealed to and challenged my young students, bringing the body in to Architecture. "See Yourself Sensing" would be an asset in almost any design or art course especially ones concerning interdisciplinary approaches. Highly recommended.

Highly recommend See Yourself Sensing for studio classes. Used as a text for my Advanced Sculpture class proved to be immensely successful: stimulated dialogue, engaged students to work beyond conventions and stimulated originative work. It is an excellent aid to understanding the potential use of all facets of technology and its impact on the viewer's sense perceptions. If you are looking to expand the student knowledge base of current artists, foster conceptual thought and incorporate technology - this is it!
