Seeing with Sound

Sonic astrophysicist Wanda Diaz Merced studies the stars in an unconventional way: through listening.When she lost her sight halfway through her career, instead of losing hope, she got creative and found a new way to Notice the stars about which she was so passionate. We tend to first Notice with our eyes, yet how might we use our other senses to Notice as well? Think about our workplaces and the Experiences we create there. How do other senses, such as sound or smell, shape the Experience of our internal and external customers? Think about our waiting spaces, offices, or lounge areas. Do our places feel warm and inviting or sterile and isolating? Are they loud or soothing? What provokes our sense of smell or touch? What kind of impressions emerge when we immerse ourselves in those spaces with our eyes closed?
