How might we communicate the first-person sensory experience of a place remotely?

Deconstructing Sensory Experience II

Project Goal: How Might We Capture the Sensory Experience of a Place Without Going There?
Funding: Umbria Art residency, Italy
Recognition: Exhibition 2015-2016, Italy
2014 - 2015

A DAY IN THE LIFE, TOLD IN PARTS is part of a larger project called THREE STORIES OF MONESTEVOLE, in which I focused on deconstructing and reconstructing the hard-to-describe sensory experience of being in a place.

For this piece, I individually catalogued elements of the sensory experience of Monestevole. Click each element to explore the component stories - from flora and fauna to architectural, interior, culinary and utilities - that make up the experience of life on site.

“Whatever you can do or dream you can, begin it; boldness has genius, power and magic in it.

Only engage, and then the mind grows heated. Begin it, and the work will be completed.”

- Goethe (in German)
