SENSES CANNOT BE IGNORED – SENSES CANNOT BE CONTROLLED – SENSES CANNOT BE SEPARATED FROM EACH OTHER.
Have a sound ever influenced your movements? Have you ever felt different about a smell after seeing its source with your own eyes? Have you ever tasted music? If so, you have encountered CROSSMODALITY – the linking of different senses.
Our senses are intricately connected in various ways, especially when it comes to taste. Senses like smell that influence your taste perception may not be a new discovery, but what about the effect that sound has on taste? How does the weight, feel, and color of your cutlery affect your perception of food? And where do these connections come from? At Sensory Seasoning you can experience the interweaving of senses hands-on in the sense-lab. It demonstrates how you can use cross-modality to enrich sensory experiences that go beyond simple taste and smell combinations. Hear, feel, and see how you can spice up everyday experiences by mixing your senses. Maybe you can even discover new connections. Sensory Seasoning is the place where you can control your cross-modality.
