Sensibilities to Lifeworlds


Our ways of being sensitive to the lifeworlds are profoundly changing. A new distribution of the sensible is emerging, giving rise to alternative feelings towards the living. My aim is to explore how sensibility comes into resonance with current socio-ecological issues. Five main forms of awareness to living environments are identified: 1) “weavers” tend to explore new attentions to living beings and to intertwine narratives together, 2) “resonators” tend to attune to ambient milieus and to vibrate to impersonal affects, 3) “appreciators” tend to revisit æsthetically the familiar and to appraise the qualities of everyday environments, 4) “performers” tend to alter ordinary gestures and to explore the powers of bodies, 5) “listeners” tend to pay attention to the ways the world sound and to render audible current environmental phenomena.
