Renowned art and technology author Madeline Schwartzman launches her new book See Yourself Sensing: Redefining Human Perception (Black Dog Publishing) -  the first book to survey the fascinating relationship between design, the body, science and the senses. Covering 50 years of artists, architects and designers who have been experimenting with the boundaries of our senses, and how they alter the way we experience the world.

See Yourself Sensing: Redefining Human Perception brings together a unique collection of images that reflect the sensory design in architecture, art and installation, chartering the breadth of the sensory theme through the work of many renowned artists. Analyzing the importance and influence of body-scaled sensory experiments, Schwartzman reveals the fascinating relationship between senses, body, art and perception.

The event also hosts ‘Shrink’, 01995, a live performance by Lawrence Malstaf (Belgium/Norway) with support from Pittsburgh's Woodstreet Galleries.
