Sensuous Knowledge: Creating a Tradition was a conference organised by Bergen National Academy of Arts in Norway in October 2004. About 70 artists, designers and teachers in higher art and design education had responded to the invitation by the Bergen National Academy of the Arts (Kunsthøgskolen i Bergen, KHiB) to spend three days listening to a few key note speeches, but first of all discussing examples of artistic research and development presented by the participants in the working groups.

In accordance with the subtitle of the conference – "Creating a Tradition" – one of the aims was to develop ways of talking about, analyzing and evaluating various kinds of artistic R&D. Another aim was to consider the special character of cognition related to artistic creativity.

The paper and net art work are both available online:
