For the past two years, Sally Taylor has been running her fascinating project called Consenses,“engaging artists from around the world, of every medium and genre, and bringing them together by asking them to interpret one another’s artwork in the vein of a game of “Telephone” and express it in their own medium. For example: 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. In this process, each artist is given seven days to extract the essence of the artwork they are provided and use this work as the catalyst for their own creation, ultimately expressing their raw reactions in the language of their own medium. None of the artists are privy to the identities of the other participants.”
