Everything We See Hides Another Thing

In our daily lives, we are constantly stimulated by a variety of senses— often, all at once. These senses play a prominent role in our lives in that they are how we understand and connect with things, whether that is with people or objects. Traditionally, art tends to only employ the sense of sight. As an individual who is deeply connected to the senses of scent and touch, I began to experiment with ways in which to employ these senses in my work. My work focuses on creating pieces that explore these senses in order to facilitate an impactful relationship between the pieces and the viewer.
