          Abstract

          Climate change, pollution, and scarcity of resources—the 21 st century confronts the human species with complex problems that have no phenomenological correlate in the everyday experience. Can there be a way to become sensible towards processes outside of our conscious awareness that take place in our atmospheric surrounding? This paper explores how atmospheric media (e.g., air, clouds, water) allow for an alternative embodied way of relating to our environment. What many atmospheric phenomena have in common is that they can hardly be objectified, i.e., they have no identifiable parts or clear dimensions, sometimes they are even partly or completely invisible. Despite their intangibility, we do experience their dynamic presence through our bodies, such as in humidity and other atmospheric phenomena. I argue that this mode of perception is pre-reflective and disregards the subject-object dichotomy.
