Time spent in therapeutic so-called sensory rooms has shown to increase concentration, alertness, calmness, and general awareness of the surrounding world. With a critical edge and a bit of humour, this events based project provides for participants to explore, learn and experience full sensorial impressions.

With a sensory apparatus that is constantly exceeded and that increasingly operates in drug-induced states of awareness, this is also an acknowledgement of the expanding notion of the human body in its current position as a somewhat destabilized sensorial interface.

Sensory Clinic explores and analyses social constructions of the senses. Participating artists are informed by medical and scientific research, by architecture and design, by a variety of artistic practices and their histories. Taking into consideration emerging aesthetic approaches, these events serve as platforms for artistic expressions and experiences that moves beyond the otherwise dominating sensorial organ, the eye.
