Sensorium is an interdisciplinary Nordic network for researchers and artists working in the area where aesthetics, technology and materiality collide. We organize conferences, workshops, publish books, host a blog, and publish an annual journal.
Sensorium is for everyone looking for new perspectives within the entangled histories of literature, media and art; researchers and artists trying to draw attention to forgotten media practices; or artists and researchers interested in how media technologies are at work in historical and contemporary configurations.
Art and media forms both of today and of the past are much more conjoined than separate academic disciplines will most often convey. That is why Sensorium is conceived as an interdisciplinary network, with the ambition to constitute a space where people from different fields and with different backgrounds can meet, exchange ideas, and develop new collaborations. Because experimental practices and alternative takes on historiography are indispensable for the development of this field of research, we encourage both artists and researchers to join the network.
