La ciencia de la sostenibilidad está marcada por un cuarto de siglo de desarrollo conceptual y metodológico. A pesar de la expansión exitosa y las experiencias prometedoras, hay limitaciones a considerar. Este artículo argumenta que las nuevas metodologías y métodos deben desarrollarse y emplearse para comprender mejor la complejidad cualitativa de la vida humana, incluidas sus dimensiones multisensoriales y estéticas. Se discuten las perspectivas metodológicas de la etnografía sensorial y la investigación basada en las artes y se presenta un estudio de caso, en el que se han empleado los métodos pertinentes. El artículo termina con una perspectiva sobre el potencial de la ciencia de la sostenibilidad ingeniosa y sensorial.
