Abstract

Geographers have a long standing interest in how perception influences human spatial behaviour and experience of places, with special focus on the visual (Pink, 2009). This post-phenomenological study extends on this body of work by investigating how people with Tourette syndrome experience and interact with everyday objects and environments. These individuals can be framed as humans with a heightened sensitivity. However, empirical research often relies strongly on introspective methods and is limited by the inability of human brains to notice and remember the details accompanying visual perception, and the inability of humans to instantly elaborate on what is perceived without it disrupting the experiential flow. This study aims to overcome these limiting factors by introducing eye-tracking as visual method. The use of a special wearable device – i.e. Tobii 2© – records elements receiving visual attention, allowing for visualising perspectives and material interactions and retracing thoughts and actions accompanying these perceptions.
