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

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.
