Like Nothing you’ve ever experienced!


Consenses debuted summer 2014 on Martha’s Vineyard. As part of the 3-day event: “The Festival of the Senses.”  This summer it returned to the Vineyard for its third and final season May-August.

Consenses’ exhibit is an all ages artistic journey through the senses allowing visitors to touch, smell, taste, watch, listen and interact with art using each piece as a lens through which to perceive the inner world of the artists.

The Exhibit, a mere 1 minute walk from the Vineyard Haven Ferry, is a series of 6 rotating sets.  Each began its life as a photograph which was then given to a musician to interpret and translate into a song, their song was interpreted by a dancer, their dance was interpreted by a poet, their poem by a painter, the painting by a perfumer, the perfume by a sculptor and the subsequent 7 piece collection by a set designer. 

The result of experiencing Consenses is an overall feeling of “enlightenment,” empathy, excitement, appreciation, understanding and peace. Visitors are encouraged to interpret the art on display for themselves and express their own perceptions using creative centers within the exhibit.

Come spend an hour or a day with us discovering the nature of your own internal process. Leave with a broader understanding of yourself, others and the world around you.
