The aim of the special issue is to extend the current discussions of art as a process of social cognition and to address the gap between descriptions of embodied cognition and the co-construction of lived experience.

We asked for papers to be developed from the presentations delivered at the conference, with a focus on interdisciplinary connections and on findings arising from intersections across research practices that involve art, theories of cognition and, in particular emphasis on how spatial art and design research approaches enable the articulation of the complex inter-relationships among environments, spaces and experiences.

Authors submitted Expressions of Interest and were given feedback towards the development and submission of full papers or visual essays, which will be double-blind peer reviewed.
