Body moves and tacit knowing

Gill, Satinder (2004) Body moves and tacit knowing. In: Cognition and Technology: Co-existence, Convergence, Co-evolution. Gorayska, Barbara and Mey, Jacob L., eds. John Benjamins Pub. Co., pp. 241-265. ISBN 978-90272-3224-3. [Book Section]


This paper explores the concept of an ‘interface' as a process of mediation that allows for tacit knowing. It takes the example of a breakdown in apprenticeship within a distributed work setting for which ‘lacking experience' is identified as the cause. The investigation uses two examples of breakdown, firstly, interpreting colours within a design task of landscape architecture, and secondly, collaborative sketching using an electronic whiteboard. Both cases pose difficulties in being co-present at the level of human rhythmic synchrony and entrainment. This work is being extended in collaboration with the Centre for Music and Science, University of Cambridge, UK.
