Playing the City workshop, Vancouver

How does texture affect our experience of place? What relationships exist between urban surfaces and ourselves? Which aspects of the tactile sense are we really aware of in our everyday lives? How much of our experience with the material world goes unnoticed?

"Touch is the sensory mode which integrates our experience of the world and ourselves. Even visual perceptions are united and integrated into the haptic continuity of the self; my body remembers who I am and where I am placed in the world."
-Juhani Pallasmaa, Hapticity and Time
