Can You See (Feel, Hear, Smell, and Taste) It?


Advance RSVP is available to Primary Entry badge types only. Walk-ups may be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Our senses are the foundations upon which we build our perception of the world. Channeling them in specific ways can lead to powerful experiences or revelations.
Adding motion to anything static communicates dynamism. Applying texture to any surface gives tactility. Coupling sound and experience conveys emotion. Infusing smell with taste can illicit memory. Privileging one or two out of these five requires mediation. Giving equal opportunity to all of these creates immersion. Technology has yet to fully engage all the human senses. Using the medium of drawing, this session will conduct a live experiment about how low-tech approaches to conveying sensorial immersion can help to transform the perception of belief.
