As human beings we perceive things with our five senses sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch. Therefore photography is not just an optical but also always a visual image of what is seen — in other words: it is subjective. In this project I am exploring ways to enable photography that addresses multiple senses.
With today’s sensors built in even the smallest devices it is possible to detect actions that go beyond touch / interaction. The line of sight can be for example detected through tilt sensors or front-cameras which are built in on many devices.
With my project I wanted to help photographers create multi-sensory photography without limiting their art direction.
Today several attempts of capturing three-dimensionality exist. All have in common that at least two or more perspectives have to be recorded which is usually achieved by the use of multiple cameras. This makes the production costly and often also less portable.
My MA practical work helped me find different workflows for the creation of interactive, three dimensional photographs and designing tools to support that workflow.
