The Sensory Tour
A further aspect of my practice is developing “sensory tours” for people with impaired vision. This represents an attempt to stretch the capacity of visual art – to break down traditional barriers excluding those with impaired vision from participating. In these tours, I invite the participants to use auditory, tactile and olfactory senses to experience art. This allows my audience to “see” the art from different perspectives. Developing such tours has greatly shaped my practice and inspired me to plan work from a tactile or sound based approach.
