Building upon the audiovisual project on a Tallinn shopping mall, the article outlines the conceptual resources vital to the ethico-aesthetic agenda of sensory ethnography, and links them with the ambitions of an emerging post-humanist cinema. By doing so it tells the story of a personal struggle for the embodiment of a non-representative and objectoriented stance and challenges the main premises of humancentered observational filmmaking style. Finally, the article argues that by provoking the experience of disorientation and more-than-human closeness, sensory ethnography can contribute to the birth of a post-human awareness and an ontological reconstitution of our being-in-the-world in the Anthropocene era.
