Abstract or Summary

PLUNGE explores new ways of experiencing and discovering art – by having visitors use all five of their senses. You will be tasting, smelling, touching and hearing (along with the usual ‘seeing’). PLUNGE is the result of ongoing explorations and collaborations between experts in sight, sound, taste, scent and touch. An immersive experience where new sonic artworks are further activated by connecting to other stimulus receptors. This is a very intimate exhibition, which requires the audience to become part of the artwork. Each piece stimulates different senses and explores ideas of perception and the fluctuating human experience of time. Each work features a sound element created by Jeremy Mayall, which has been paired with collaborators in different fields: Dan Inglis and James Sutherland (moving image); Paul Bradley (visual art); Jamieson Hudson (baking/design); Demeter Fragrance Library (perfume). Along with the skilled support of specialist craftsman/artists/technicians Tony Nicholls, Owen Mayall and Brad Morgan to help construct each experience. The inspiration for PLUNGE comes from ongoing compositional experiments by Jeremy, along with a range of neuroscientific studies, which explore the concept that none of our senses work in isolation, and that they are deeply interconnected and influential on one another. The works, through the common thread of musical composition, explore an ever changing thread of consciousness where you begin to notice the way that your brain shifts perceptions between our internal and external worlds. These works create a state that engages the brains own tendency to build worlds, find patterns and make connections, allowing the multi-sensory experience to provided a heightened sense of engagement with each work.
