An unparalleled multi-sensory journey through the natural world awaits visitors at ArtScience Museum’s latest exhibition, Sensory Odyssey: Into the Heart of Our Living World. Making its Asian debut on 27 May, this groundbreaking show will captivate visitors by unveiling the beauty of our planet’s biodiversity through up-close encounters with diverse habitats teeming with life.
Following a successful eight-month run in Paris at the Muséum national d’Histoire naturelle (French National Museum of Natural History) last year, Sensory Odyssey is now set to take even more visitors on a voyage through seven ecosystems from around the world.
As explorers for a day, visitors to the exhibition will join animals at a watering hole in the African Savannah, perch atop the rainforest canopy in French Guiana, and take to the skies with bats as they hunt for food. Visitors can also experience swimming with a family of giant sperm whales in the ocean near Mauritius and float across polar landscapes in the far north of Greenland, or even shrink in size to burrow into the ground before emerging in grasslands filled with pollinating insects.
These environments are brought to life through ultra-high-definition video projection, spatial audio, and unique scents that engage and magnify visitors’ perceptions of sight, sound, and smell. Developed by a cross-disciplinary team of artists, designers, biologists, engineers, developers, neuroscientists, scent-makers, and media specialists, this multi-sensory show sits at the crossroads of exhibition, performing arts, cinema and technological innovation, as well as cognitive and natural sciences.
