Quasi-cose. La realtà dei sentimenti

Tonino Griffero
Quasi-cose. La realtà dei sentimenti
Bruno Mondadori Editore, Milano
152 pages, 2013
ISBN 9788861597693

What are quasi-things? First of all atmospheres, that is, feelings poured out into space and that we usually cannot change, but also pain, whose aggressiveness is at the same time a guarantee of identity of the subject. And then shame, both personal and vicarious (the one we feel for those who "should" be ashamed!); the felt-body, whose "isles" exceed the organs of the physical body; the look, so aggressive, in everyday life as in a portrait, that it produces a hemorrhage of our identity; and finally the twilight in its evocative vagueness.We all describe quasi-things, locate them into a space, recognize their intersubjective and amodal identity and, above all, affectively perceive their intrusiveness. Although ephemeral, intermittent, and without a cause outside of themselves, quasi-things, in fact, establish a specific communication with the felt-body of the perceiver, creating the emotional space in which he is located and that affects him in many ways . A philosophy that wishes to be not an abstract exercise, but a reflection on how we feel here and now, must then recognize that quasi-things and the affective qualities they generate are to be necessarily included in any ontological repertory worthy of that name.

  • Premessa
  1. Le quasi-cose vanno e vengono senza che ci si possa chiedere dove sono state nel frattempo (a partire dal vento)
  2. Le quasi-cose aggrediscono e ci resistono: i sentimenti come atmosfere
  3. Le quasi-cose si sentono (ma non localizzano): le isole del corpo-proprio
  4. Le quasi-cose sono prove dell’esistenza: il dolore come genesi del soggetto
  5. Le quasi-cose ci contagiano (anche indirettamente): la vergogna vicaria
  6. Le quasi-cose comunicano con noi: dallo sguardo al ritratto (e ritorno)
  7. Le quasi-cose sono tanto più efficaci quanto più vaghe: crepuscolarismo

par International Ambiances Network on 

Conference Colloquium - Designing with Smell: Challenges, Techniques and Perceptions

Eight International Conference on Design Principles and Practices, UBC Robson Square, Vancouver, Canada, 16-18 January 2014

This conference session at the Eighth International Conference on Design Principles and Practices in Vancouver, Canada in January 2014 will bring together academics and practitioners from across a range of design disciplines and include presentations on some of the different ways in which smell is being considered and incorporated into design practice.

This call invites abstracts for oral presentations of 15 minutes from academics and/or practitioners who are including smell in their work in some way, and will explore some of the challenges and opportunities faced in doing so. Presentations might highlight, for example, issues experienced in making the invisible visible within design and prototype development; sourcing appropriate materials and expertise; dealing with issues and perceptions of chemical sensitivity; wrestling with consumer fears of manipulation; and, evaluating and evidencing the impact of olfactory characteristics upon consumer and public perceptions of the product, service and/or environment being designed.

To be considered for inclusion in this 90 minutes conference session, please email an abstract to Victoria Henshaw at the University of Manchester, UK, no later than 5pm (GMT) Monday 8 April 2013.

Deadline: Monday 8 April 2013

It also offers new opportunities for interaction through forums and blogs that will be open to support the Network projects.

The new website provides easier access to the information of members and allows everyone to edit or supplement his/her personal information. Members registered on the former website keep their username but they now have a new password. To reset your password, simply click on "Forgot your password?" in the login page.

This website is at the disposal of the Network members. You can submit news and post links to RSS feeds and websites of interest to the other members of the network.
