We did a talk and a performance art session at the TEDxCopenhagenSalon Green Natives on December 9th 2013 feat. Tantra Clap, Dome of Visions Crew, The Velvet State and Sisters Academy performers*. Performance will continue during break-out-sessions feat. Sarah Armstrong and Eriko Makimura.
“My argument is that something new is happening. Something that I term Sensuous society. To make sense of that we have to visit another argument – The argument that one dimension of being and being together has been under prioritized since the Industrialization. And potentially amplified by our current digital age. This dimension, which has now been under prioritized for more than 2 centuries, is the aesthetic dimension. By aesthetic I do not only mean form or the way things look but I mean the way we are and behave in the world.
The aesthetic dimension has the sensuous experience at its core. The sensuous experience is one that allows us to activate all our senses. An intensified presence as educational researcher Ken Robinsons states – When our heart and mind resonate with what is happening in that very moment. When we are full of phantasy, desires, dreams and imagination that manifests as creativity. This is the sensuous experience that the aesthetic dimension allows us to have.
A society that under prioritize such an important dimension of human life cannot seize to be nor create a sustainable society either…”
