Aesthesia, multi-sensory experience
Aesthesia: a multi-sensory experience by Ashley G. Garner
ÆSTHESIA is a multi-sensory body of work that explores the therapeutic benefits of nature through sight, sound, scent, and taste. Can experiencing specific plants on different sensory levels such as sight, sound, scent, and taste, have physiological healing benefits? Do different plants heal us in different ways - such as the sound of Daisies, the sight of an Orchid, or the scent of a Morning Glory? If these different sensory experiences of each plant are combined, what would happen? This is what ÆSTHESIA explores through the lens of different plants, first beginning with six of the most widely used medicinal flowers: Lavender, Chamomile, Tiger Lily, Marigold, Wild Rose, and Echinacea.
