The Extra Sensorial Garden

06.06 – 09.06.2012

The Extra Sensorial Garden is a fictional garden that has been artificially created to stimulate the visitor’s sensory system and evoke strong physical experiences. There is not always a lot to see, but instead there’s a lot to be sensed. Changes in light, colour, temperature and sound create the texture of sensation in this artificial nature experience. How do you relate to nature? Do you want to be overwhelmed by it or calmed down? Or, are you simply one of those who think nature no longer exists? The Extra Sensorial Garden will not give you the answers, but instead will offer sensations to be experienced and discussed.
