Different sensations aggregate to become our dailiness. Senses are not only mediation between the physical body and its environment, but also mediums that encode and decode exposed information. When visuality became the dominant sensory faculty with the development of modernity, human beings seemed to forget how senses of hearing, touching and smelling communicate and connect with seeing. Our language consequently lacks the verbs for auditory, tactile and olfactory experiences. To re-enact our sensory experiences, Sensuous Tua-Tiu-Tiann is a series of programs focusing on explore and comprehend this neighborhood through senses except for vision. It is also a celebration of our settlement in the historical area of Taipei for the fourth year. We convivially invite you to creatively portray the landscape of Tua-Tiu-Tiann by different senses, perhaps by listening to the aroma of the street food in front of Cisheng temple, smelling the convoluted stories in the hidden massage parlors, or, moving your body as workout equipment.
