Getting dizzy: A Conversation Between the Artistic Research of Dizziness and Somatic Architecture.

“Getting Dizzy” is an essay in the format of a conversation between two experimental fields. Here, the fields of dizziness and Somatic Architecture are in dialogue in order to go deeper into their interconnections. Together they form also relationships to somatics and somaesthetics. Dizziness can be understood as a resource but also as a somatic state. Somatic Architecture uses somatic states in order to create systems of co-constitution of bodies and environments. In this conversation, the individual research fields intertwine with artistic, philosophical, medical, ethnographic, or architectural sources and case studies. This in-between field of the conversation appears in itself as an epistemic territory.
