Look Wonder Discover’s 2019 Community Art Project has a rather complex title, but if the title fits…
…and the title does fit.
Last summer we attempted to create a piece of art that was created by and representative of the hundreds of people who experienced it. To us, it was a great success and cannot wait to begin our 2020 project.
Taxonomy of Perception (working definition)
/takˈsänəmē, əv, pərˈsepSH(ə)n/
noun: is the process of naming and classifying the vast and limitless ability of awareness that each human acquires through their senses.
“A Taxonomy of Perception” (AToP) is a Community Art Project inspired and prompted by natural, artistic, and mathematical concepts and fueled by inspiration and perception.
In the summer of 2019, hundreds of participants experienced a similar process: shared the same prompts, in the same space, using the same materials, then recognized, identified, and recorded their perception of the experience.
The six-piece, three-part project is combined into an installation, about the height of a human, made up of concentric circles. The sculpture can be twisted and manipulated to witness a multitude of perceptions.
The installation includes the list of perceptions recorded by participants, creating a map to navigate the art, which just might create another perception… yours.
