Life Knowledge in Practice
Self-awareness of sounds and verbalization by onomatopoeia as a means to deepen our understanding of a place


The perception of a place may not necessarily be limited to visual elements – auditory information also adds to our understanding of it. A place is filled with many sounds. However, people hear different sounds at a place, depending on selective auditory attention, unconscious selection of sounds to hear. Further, the sounds heard and sensed at a particular place depend on topography and different natural landscapes. This project aims to gather the sounds that can be felt at particular places and verbalize this feeling using onomatopoeia. This is expected to become a new approach in which we can deepen our understanding and attachment towards a place.
