A Study on Proprioception and Peripheral Vision in Synesthesia and Immersion
Abstract

Building on the one hand on the link between immersion and peripheral vision, and on the other hand on the visually induced perceptual illusion of self-motion (vection), the author examines synesthesia through the relationship between peripheral vision and proprioception. The author maintains that immersion in installations results from multimodal perception grounded in motor-sensory activity, and he considers installations and scenographies in which the viewer's peripheral vision, balance, motion and posture play an important role.
