Abstract [en]

Somaesthetics is an interdisciplinary field, originally proposed by the philosopher Richard Shusterman and grounded in pragmatist philosophy and phenomenology. An interesting result of engaging in Feldenkrais exercises was the effect on the whole beings. After a lesson, all students felt they had become more honest, more grounded in themselves, more reflective, and a bit slower in their movements and reactions. When bringing out three designs, researchers repeatedly had to try different digital and physical materials, faking interactions and testing them in situ to find the ones that would make sense. The interactions had to be simulated and acted out in order for them to really feel their impact on their bodily experiences. Simply imagining what they would be like was not enough to qualify the experience.
