This papers discusses a practice-based research project undertaken during the 2009 'Diagramming Movement Between Cartography and Choreographer' Research Project. The intention of the research project was was to record through audio/visual means traces of the sensation elicited by the sensory experiences of sensewalking. The paper explores the conceptual and pragmatic issues that arose in our attempts to articulate these traces using digital media. It describes the practical strategies and techniques developed for 'recording' experiences involved in Sensewalking, and the digital processing of the outcomes of those recordings, the aim of which was to provoke similar experiential/physiological responses in viewers and listeners, that is to go some way to answering the question: can vision be experienced haptically? It also reflects on the efficacy and value to the strategies developed in the light of a proposed artistic manifestation of the outcomes. The paper also explores the play of perception and consciousness in sensate experience, and issues concerning the 'authenticity' of any 'real-world' re-presentation of the nuances of sensate experience.
