Consenses is a global art form and project that unfolds like a game of Telephone across the world.
A musician interprets a photograph, a dancer interprets their song, a painter interprets the dance, a perfumer interprets the painting, a poet interprets the perfume and so on until all five senses are represented.
Each artist extracts the essence of the artwork they are provided and uses it as the catalyst for their own creation. Finally set designers are given the cumulative artwork and asked to create a physical space for the art to live in. Repeating this process 22 times, 150 artists from around the world ended up participating from 22 countries. The resulting exhibition is now showing through the end of 2015. Visitors participate by lending their own artistic interpretations of the work on display. Consenses for its artists as well as for its visitors, builds unity, understanding, compassion and tolerance for others perspectives. For more information please refer to the TED Talk here.
