What if humans would be able to smell, hear and see the world with other parts of their bodies ?
Through the experimental multiplication of sensory organs in unusual body areas such as limbs and spine, this project investigates alternative ways of functioning and communication between humans.
The intention is to increase sensory information in order to extend the human being perception of the world. In a progressively technological world, senses are amplified so one doesn’t forget to physically experience.
The work portrays three differently modified bodies that inevitably generate new possibilities of interaction. The body is rebooted, and the human senses become the technology we can already experience life through.
