Reasonance: Sensing a Shitstorm

Marie Højlund, Anne-Sofie Udsen

Research output: Contribution to conferencePaperResearchpeer-review


In this paper we explore how the affective and bodily experience of being the centre of a written shitstorm, can be translated to others through sensification. Through the 3D system Sound-O-Matic our installation aims to explore how an auralization of a shitstorm can allow the listeners to be affected by an atmosphere that was earlier only felt by the exposed individual. The paper describes the design process guided by the concept of reasonance through an infraesthetic approach, as a way to explore, how we should not only resonate with the experience, but also critically reflect on the entanglements of resonance and reason. We identify four main refrains in the shitstorm that can be translated into the present through the installation, extending the shitstorm into a new sensory space that we can hear, feel and discuss.
