Sensory Spaces is an exploration of sensory experiences within the urban environment. Intangible senses such as smell, sound, tastes and textures are interpreted through abstract sketches, and combined with photography and videography of cities at Dusk and Dawn. Influenced by the practice of sensory therapy, key themes of protection, play and control are integral to the project. Protection is translated as padding, quilting and reflective tape. Playful samples are achieved through the use of traditional beading techniques and the application of raised silicone motifs. Control is interpreted by creating samples which ‘react’ to the handler, using crinkle paper, heat reactive printing and the incorporation of LEDs. Sensory Spaces has resulted in a collection of subtly tactile samples which incorporate sensory feedback for the wearer whilst still maintaining a sense of sartorial sincerity.
