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.
Billur’s childhood memory
Alice’s dream of washing a wig
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?
Our expedition will continue in 2017, and we will probe much deeper still…
