We had our showcase events last week at the British Museum in London, where our group of co-researchers from the Tower Project demonstrated their multisensory ‘labels’ to the public. The response from the public was excellent, and the group did a fine job of explaining what they had created and why.
Below are the multisensory labels (twelve small sensory labels, plus the larger ‘chocolate box’) and some images taken at the event. You can see more of the event photos at the sister site SensoryObjects.
The twelve sensory labels created by the Tower Group
Designed by Adelana, and based upon a diamond ring she saw in the Enlightenment Gallery
Sensory Label designed by Judith. She wanted the sound to be triggered by bending the leather sandal that she made. The sound also triggers using a touch sensor on top of the box.
This sensory label is based upon objects from Egypt that are in the Enlightenment Gallery. The engraved design resembles Hieroglyphics, and the soundtrack tells a story about a trip to Egypt, from the designer’s perspective.
This sensory label is based upon a plate in the Enlightenment Gallery which originated in China. The soundtrack plays a collection of sounds relating to food (that could be placed onto the plate, and music related to China.
This sensory label has an engraving which was designed to resemble a heron that is in the Enlightenment Gallery.
This sensory label was inspired by the Warwick Vase. It reminded him of a football cup …
This sensory label was inspired by the statue of Paris in the Enlightenment Gallery.
