sensory workshop 3

In the last workshop of 2016 we were exploring how subjective states, such as dreams or memories, can be communicated via multi-sensory impressions and without sight.

Below some of the innerscapes created by participants and experienced by touch, smell, and hearing alone.

The various experiences of the encounters, whether pleasant, adventurous or unsettling, were translated into drawings and maps.

We continued in developing tactile conversations and defining a subjective vocabulary of touch.

These are some of the resulting outcomes of these tactile exchanges between participants. We found that often there would be a surprising amount of deeply subjective experience communicated non verbally through the materials.

The final part of the workshop was exploring a journey into an interior…

Can we leave the everyday world behind, and with the help of specially selected sensory clues and a fragmented narrative, embark on a journey of the imagination that takes us out of the confinements of the actual space?
