Description

This sensory kit is a component of the Performance In Bloom. In response to the displacement of a live performer due to the Covid-19 Pandemic I have conceived sensory activation kits for remote broadcast. This kit is concerned with giving an audience a corporeal experience in spite of physical isolation. The components of the kits include a custom oil diffuser with a fragrance that evokes the body, as well as a form that resembles goddess statues. There is a consumable in the form of a blooming tea, and tactile ephemera from the performance. The design is an ode to FLUXUS kits that worked with a DIY approach and recombined everyday objects and actions into artistic expressions. The methodologies and techniques on how to re-create your own kit can be accessed on my website a for comprehension and reenactment. The objects in the kits may evoke bespoke delivery boxes or self care kits but by the reconceptualization of these forms elevates the design into an metaphysical aesthetic experience. These objects acquire a magical aura and become a portable alter for a sensory experience.
