Trial Separation

April 14, 2014

Trial Separation was an experiential art installation focused on the senses least used in an artistic setting: taste and smell.

Participants entered a sterile, white lab room, being told the instruction to sit and drink clear liquid. Each liquid was flavored to a specific flavor, and a sign was held up in front of them while a sound was played in their ear. They were then asked to describe their instantaneous experience in a few words. A score was kept of alien language, and handed to the participant upon completion.

The installation appeared as a one-off in the {Re}Happening Festival in 2014.
