Distributed Perception: Co-Operation between Sense-Able, Actionable, and Accountable Semiotic Agents

Research output: Contribution to journalJournal articleResearchpeer-review

Perception is not just a cognitive, private experience, but achieved in and through interactive and practical actions in co-operation with other semiotic agents. This article contributes to work on multisensory perception that is distributed as an interactional phenomenon between agents. Based on video-ethnographic research conducted among visually impaired people, and an ethnomethodological, conversation-analytical framework, the article contributes findings about the most basic sensory characteristics of distributed perception: co-operation between sense-able, action-able, accountable semiotic agents that can communicate multisensorial information in order to solve situated and emerging problems together.
