Abstract

In perceptual sciences we face a clear predominance of the visual domain. Actually, even job opportunities and textbooks orient to this trend which was already initiated by the first scientists who systematically addressed perceptual phenomena. One reason might be the relative ease of testing visual stimuli; another reason might be a particular focus on visual phenomena also in everyday life. Due to this 150 years lasting neglect of other sensory domains, we face a huge lack of knowledge of holistic perception comprising multisensory experience. This results in a problem in understanding multisensory phenomena particularly in product usage where specifically the interaction between haptics and vision plays a major role. Here, I will present a functional model of haptic aesthetics that is aimed to link the domain of haptics with other modalities.
