Abstract [en]

Everyone feels sensitive at times, but some people are more sensitive than others, the difference lays in their Nervous system and the way it processes information from the environment. Highly sensitive people simply have a “thinner skin”which means they react more strongly to stimulations of any kind. This can include external stimulations from their environment, and the people they’re surrounded by or internal stimulations like their own thoughts and emotions. Highly sensitive people also process stimulations and experiences longer and more deeply. A highly sensitive person is often associated with being weak and fragile but high sensitivity also has its benefits, as it enables you to feel more deeply and experience and appreciate even the smallest details-but of course it has its downsides too, as you also experience negative emotions and stimulations in a more intense and deep way. Sensory processing Sensitivity, which is the scientific term, is found in about 20 percent of humans, equally in male and female individuals and over 100 other species, but even though one out of five people lives with this personality trait, it is still not a very well known subject and doesn’t seem to be very accepted and valued in our society.

My aim with this project is to shed light on the topic of high sensitivity by sharing the stories and personal experiences from highly sensitive people around the world in combination with my own artistic visualizations.
