When dizzy we cannot distinguish between inside and outside.
‘Dizziness’ implies notions of physical and emotional disequilibrium, staggering, confusion, uncertainty, and turmoil. This article discusses dizziness as a possible resource for creativity including the concept of the ‘compossible space’.
Can dizziness be a resource? What remains after unsettledness and disorientation? And how can we see communities find their balance in uncertain situations? Particularly now, in times of ubiquitous invocations of global crisis, these questions of collective balancing and balancing collectives are more relevant than ever.
Vertigo in the City brings together an eclectic mix of scholars, clinicians, practitioners and artists to share perspectives on vertigo. The multidisciplinary conversations explore how sensations of dizziness and disorientation are diagnosed, analysed, evoked, induced, critiqued and represented, with a particular focus on the built environment.
