Sound is a medium that acts as a glue between the senses. Hearing is deeply intertwined with vision and movement. Beyond that, researchers and artists are mapping out crossmodal associations with touch, smell, feel, and taste, leading to new and fascinating interaction designs, architecture, and culinary experiences, as well as a veritable coral reef of artworks. The interaction, “~sound:senses”, is the core of the Symposium.
Date /Time : 22 August, 2.30pm – 5.30pm
Venue: ArtScience Museum Expression Gallery, Level 4
“~sound:senses” seeks to explore unknown sensorial interactions together with leading artists and scientists in the fields of psychology, sound art, perception, and multimodal design. Guest speakers include interaction designer Stefania Serafin, crossmodality researcher Charles Spence, composer Joyce Beetuan Koh, filmmaker Daniel Belton, and psycholinguist Suzy Styles
