Sensory Experiments was a studio-led experiential event that wholly embraced the provocative power of the world around us, enjoyed by over 350 people as part of Melbourne Design Week 2019.

In this fully immersive experience, through three distinct Sense-Scapes, visitors were offered interactive performance, and confrontation with tastes, scents, textures, spatial constructs and collective practices. They helped create the Manifesto for Sensory Intelligence – a record of sensorial responses to the stimuli-saturated Sense-Scapes.

Internationally renowned chef Justin James (Executive Chef of Vue de monde and Iki Jime and previously of Eleven Madison Park & Noma Copenhagen) reignited people’s sense of taste. Floral artist Hattie Molloy interrogated sensual perception with her reckoning of the Sublime. Visitors participated in live-choreographed performances, and were aurally challenged by the masters behind the Sydney Opera House’s iconic acoustics.
