Ethnography of the invisible: energy in the multisensory home
journal contributionposted on 2012-02-27, 12:16 authored by Sarah Pink
This article is concerned with the question of the ethnography of the invisible: multisensory research about domestic energy practices. In it I draw on existing and imagined research to outline an agenda for doing ethnography of domestic energy consumption practices. I will not be the first to use qualitative methods to research how people consume energy in their homes. Yet my aim is to further the methodological basis for such research by examining the implications of applying a theory of multisensoriality to understanding the co-constitution of the practices and places of domestic energy consumption.
