Exhibit presented by Human Ecology students is called Colour Catch: Aesthetic Experiences Through West African Textiles and Nature.
Colour Catch: . . . . Enjoy a sensory feast! Explore beyond the visual by taking the time to imaginatively engage with the artifacts presented. The aesthetic experience is often based on the senses of sight, touch, taste, sound, and smell to holistically understand our environment. However, not all cultures base their experiences in these senses, as western cultures define them. PR Website blurb How do you understand your own experience of things you see, when you have limited engagement with them? We have created a multifaceted exhibit to encourage you to reflect on your own perspectives; then to delve into the personal stories of the collectors who have provided artifacts. We ask you to stop, look, and feel. The inherent qualities of the objects you see, such as colour, pattern, texture, and form, are innate to our understanding of the world around us. Enjoy an enticing exhibit that juxtaposes the intricate attributes of nature with those of West African textiles. Additional source material to enrich your journey is provided through the strategic placement of QR codes.
