Disorientation has been a huge concern for mankind since the earliest uses of a space that is not just proximal or peripersonal. We do not only get lost — we also feel disoriented.

Popular wisdom has it that disorientation is no longer a problem, because of assistive, GPS-based devices. However, the idea that disorientation will disappear from the human landscape is wishful thinking at best. Cases of device-induced disorientation (intensive use of GPS-based navigation devices) are documented with increased frequency ; disorientation pathologies will continue to exist, related to aging, dementia and various disorders, with no therapy in sight ; and technology is not a universal or definitive solution (due to failure, power shortage, accidents, poor ergonomics, inherent complexities of the devices or improper use). Finally, even though information is the key remediation for disorientation, contemporary environments are prone to information overload — in particular an overload of information aimed at remediating disorientation.

The Disorientation Group at Institut Nicod has provided conceptual tools to unify different strands of research and intervention on disorientation. In particular it has pointed out a double dissociation between getting lost and feeling disoriented, has characterised disorientation as a metacognitive feeling and has explored the consequences for the various fields tackling disorientation.

The group uses a conceptual/philosophical approach, informed by empirical data from the cognitive sciences, the neurosciences, ethnography and design studies. It constitutes a corpus of subjective disorientation reports and collects data on field trips, in partnership with public and private institutions/companies. 

The program will be detailed later.
