In this article I draw from my research about gender, identity, and the

home, to discuss the visual and the other senses in ethnographic

experience and anthropological representation. First, I discuss how

visual ethnographic research might appreciate the sensory nature of

experience. Seeing the home as both the context and subject of field-

work, I shall introduce the idea of the ‘sensory home’. This refers to

the home as a domain composed of different sensory elements (smell,

touch, taste, vision, sound) that is simultaneously understood and

created through the sensory experience and manipulation of these

elements. I then explore how such visual and sensory research might

best be represented as text that is conversant with mainstream

anthropology. I shall suggest that while film and writing have both

tackled this theme, hypermedia offers new possibilities that might

bridge the gap between written and visual anthropology.
