The Open Senses Symposium 

OPEN SENSES SYMPOSIUM                         The Institute of Philosophy, Senate House                                         19TH MAY 2017

The Open Senses Symposium presses "pause" on the ever growing and diverse multi-sensory scene. And is asking international sensory practitioners spanning law, art, neurology, gastroenterology, therapy one question - Why now? Why are audiences, restaurants, and creative practitioners interested in sensory practice? How does the 'trend' of multi-sensory practice demonstrate where our digital practice, musicians, designers and audiences are at - and most importantly, where do we need to head next to stay relevant? And how can we use the science behind the senses to extend immersion?
