An encounter with lived experience: embodied explorations of walking through film

This visual arts research project is underpinned by the notion that lived experience is pre-cognitive and pre-reflective, always already unfolding in everyday life. Particular consideration is given to the lived body as intrinsic to experience and mediatory between self and world, and the durational nature of lived time. The practical investigation takes a phenomenological approach in focusing on the habitual modality of routinely walking from A to B, with the aim of attempting to understand my experiences while walking to and from work as examples of lived experience. Methods and processes that are reflective of a sense-making approach to understanding the livedness of everyday experience are employed. Filmic encounter is used to investigate ways of translating these experiences for the viewer and an embodied approach to filmic experience is explored through notions of affect and haptic visuality.
