Flying Object, London, UK



Flying Object would like to reunite the senses. In addition to looking, why not smell, touch, taste or hear the many things depicted in great works of art? Imagine having the overwhelming sound and sulphurous smell of a volcano erupting when you take in the vastness of a John Martin painting, or experiencing the tastes, smells and sounds associated with Hogarth’s The Roast Beef of Old England. By complementing the visuality of art with other sensual experiences, the neurological responses of visitors would also be monitored to give an insight into the emotive power of the senses.
