Conference Paper
In this video artwork, the author looks at the interaction between neurodiversity and media design, focusing on his acoustic condition of hyperacusis as well as his neurodivergent condition of Asperger's. There are many inner thoughts that the hyper sensorial acoustic disorder brings, and the author creates poems as an output, interrelating art and...

As the worlds of art and technology continue to merge and consumers of digital culture become creators, the web has become an important platform for open, decentralised collaborations that reach across disciplines, from net-art to culture-jamming. Through participatory engagements at MozFest that explore these ideas in different ways, we have explo...

This paper is rooted in an experimental inquiry of issue-oriented temporary techno-social gatherings or TTGs, which are typically referred to as hackathons, workshops or pop-ups and employ rapid design and development practices to tackle technical challenges while engaging with social issues. Based on a collaboration between three digital practitio...

... Following from my previous works around the topic of hyperacusis, and specifically following my graphic and media design ethnographic exploration of hyperacusis (Damiani 2019) as well as my videopoems (Damiani 2020), here I explore the combination of practices with both visual and sound art, also connecting to sound therapeutic processing via swimming. In this collaborative venture it is all interconnected, and we set-up our band Aqua Recoded (to note: I cannot even listen to music due to my higher sensitivity to sound). ...
... This research includes situations in which neurodivergent individuals were involved in the design of data visualisations due to nonstandard processing of visual information [177] or the creation of shared spaces in which neurotypical and neurodivergent people can meet, for example, as kids during play [53] or as adults in work environments [63]. Rarely do we find published work resulting from self-determined design experiments, such as an artistic exploration of the specifics of neurodivergent embodiments by Damiani [33]. We deem these to be important instances of what research and design can look like when driven by neurodivergent people, and it indicates a similar potential for research and design concerning people with ADHD. ...
