Peripheral Response is a responsive installation, which uses the body’s peripheral nervous system as a launching point for an exploration of seeking-to-understand. The elements in the installation are informed by medical textbook illustrations of the body’s sensory receptors, which combined create our sense of touch. Each receptor contains multiple sensing devices allowing the objects to ‘know’ the viewers location and to respond. When the participant completes the circuit of information exchange, the elements responds creating a relationship with the viewer – audibly following them as they move through the room. The resulting soundscape evokes a system of communication that invites the viewers to insert themselves into a communicative model. The resulting system of exchange is a physical encounter, where viewers’ body becomes guest. As one moves through the space, the ripple effect caused by their presence calms and the installation settles.
