Infosynaesthesia is a term used to describe technology-mediated sensory experience, or the cross-wiring of data inputs/outputs and sensory inputs/outputs.[1] Examples of infosynaesthesia range from the most simple example of mobile aural and vibrational alerts to explorations of such as those of Daito Manabe, creating facial movements stimulated electronically by aural inputs.[2]. Infosynaesthesia occurs on social networks when one receives a physiological response when a post or comment is interacted with by another participant on that network. In this case sensory inputs and outputs are intertwined. Many other examples of infosynaesthesia are prevalent in the lives of those who preform on and interact with each other in digital spaces, and the phenomenon will continue to increase in sophistication as advances in technology are made.
