The human sense of touch allows us to understand the world through texture and shape and enables the manipulation and embodiment of tools. Neurophysiological and psychophysical research has identified the exquisitely sensitive neural and psychological mechanisms that capture information through the skin. Ecologically, this information is used to guide behaviour and control movement. However, as Manchester thrums at our fingertips, these capabilities are hijacked by the motion of the city. Through vibrotactile psychogeography, this chapter explores the interface between the vibration of transport, construction and material texture, and the physiological machinery of sensation.
