Sensory Sundays @ ForesenseLab

A Future Explorers Club

Sensory Sundays is an open club for future explorers hosted by ForesenseLab and TANK - architecture & interior design.

We gather each first Sunday of the month to reimagine the future from the genesis of our current crises. Each Lab we explore a different design challenge that we are confronted with on a daily basis, either as a user of technology, or as its creator.

On the 3rd of March we continue this series by zooming into one of the key design questions of today: how can we respect our own and other people’s attention?

These chaotic times ask of us to re-imagine the future from a place of inner peace, respecting the value of our presence and attention. It asks of us to embody new ethics that honor the unknowability of your destiny. But for that we have to challenge our current relationship with technology and its repercussions on our daily lives.

As designers, creatives, coders, thinkers and artists we are creating a new world. We are merging the virtual and the physical. We are creating a new system of exchanging information. A new way of building and nurturing relationships. In this new world the paths are multi-layered, multi-sensory and complex. We need our senses to be actively engaged in many worlds at once. We need to be comfortable with a continuous state of uncertainty and excited about being an experience designer of our own lives.

This series is for all who identify as "future exploring”. Together we define the new social principles that could be making up "a new common sense": a new internalized social contract of how we can design the future of our digital and physical spaces with heart. To prove that the digital spheres can be more than a place of seduction and addiction.

Together we will explore the neglected parts of ourselves. What drives us? How can we truly connect to people beyond the social construct, and how can we incorporate non-technical, more intuitive, multi-sensory awareness in our design processes?
