Daniela Vávrová’s PhD project is an audiovisual ethnography in a Sepik community, Papua New Guinea. With the Karawari-speaking Ambonwari and their saying 'Skin has Eyes and Ears', Daniela explores how people shape and are shaped by their social and cultural environment through their sensory experience. Daniela focuses in particular on the visible ‘skin, body’ and invisible ‘insideness, understanding’ as the main domains of people’s lives and the interaction between these domains. She implements audio-visual material into her writings and explores the limits of sensory mediation through the writings and screen.
