Our minds cannot grasp anything that’s not derived from the way we process reality through our senses. As humans, we see, touch, smell, taste and hear our reality – it is everything we’ve got. If we wish to tell meaningful stories, as artist, we need to find our most expressive tools and techniques to try and create the story that touches the core of what it’s like to be a human on all our senses. Not only to see, but to hear and touch and communicate a deeper meaning to the experience.
Our mediums are broken and can only contain few elements of our sensable reality. To work in moving image, which is one of the most expressive art forms that combine movement through time of images and sound, means to be deprived from smell, touch, and taste. To record music, most of times, means to hold back on visualizing sounds to ones listeners. It is only in the last century, out of hundreds of years of expressing ourselves through art, that we are starting to mix between the senses through technology and to express ideas and narratives with a goal of bridging gaps of these holes in our perception.
In my work I seek to incorporate and mix more senses and bring aspects of the physical into the digital and vice versa. A synesthesia of the senses in order to from a connection to the experience in ways that are unique and expressive to the subject. I want to find new ways in which different methodologies complement and enrich each other when mixed together. Our senses are not yet accustomed to technology, building new experiences that would define our behavior with technology.
