Art has the power to communicate through, and to, all of our senses. This sensory landscape experience will go beyond verbal language and tap into other senses in hopes to create attention and presence within the body. This project's idea is to transcend the known world of spoken language and written rules. Scent, touch, sound, movement, and visuals will tap into the psyche. These bodily sensations will take you out of your head and into your body, while you pay attention to your movements, senses, feelings, and the present.
This experience will take place outside the gallery/museum walls with seven participating artists. Having this exhibit in nature juxtaposed by the city will examine our circadian rhythms and our economy of consumption.
