(2013) Sensing Reykjavik

In 2013 a series of experimental, sensorial walks was created in Reykjavik, as a pilot version of the walks later made for the Sensescapes Thesis. Each session was a personal experience for 1 participant. The walks were based in the urban area inside and around campus of University of Iceland. Each walk lasted about 1 1/2 hours, followed by a feedback session. On the walks the participants were led blindfolded through several small-scale environments, experiencing and feeling various atmospheres. Together we went through the student bar, the dining hall, the parking area and a green area outside. We did not talk on the way. We moved slowly, smelling the grass, listening to the noise of people, investigating spaces, cars, water, sand… And each other. The guidance was light, leaving space for the participants’ own input. Most of the participants were students or former students at the university, and as such, the walks were created as a practical study of how to integrate new ways of being, moving and sensing in the participants’ own every-day-environment.
