The introduction outlines the overall claim behind the collection: experiments are inherently affective because of their ability to produce sensuous events that enable more or less intense shifts in attention and involve participants in orchestrated yet unpredictable processes that activate the body's ability to relate to, sense and imagine the world in new ways. The introduction demonstrates the presence of affective experimentation across sociocultural domains and offers a heuristic aimed at qualifying the analysis of both 'found' examples of affective experimentation and research processes or methods that are themselves experimental. The heuristic unfolds three dimensions of what affective experiments fundamentally do: they reveal unrecognized aspects of the social, they engage with unpredictable and transgressive processes and they enact a future in the making. The introduction claims that all experiments to be called experimental engage with these three dimensions.
