THE CATALYTIC LANDSCAPE: EXPERIMENTS IN SENSORY PERCEPTION

img_8675.jpg

The word "catalyst" alludes to an inducing substance that causes or accelerates a reaction, yet its original usage meant dissolution and destruction. By combining these meanings the word may be used to describe an intervention whose effects extend beyond its own corporeal, immediate boundary. The contributing designers isolate and explore elements of investigation through scientific and/or artistic research, resulting in experiments that engage sensory perception.
