Shadow Play by Lajos Szabó (1932)

Welcome to Seven Senses, exploring reality through our senses.

Every full moon, I dive into a different topic – merging creativity and spirituality – and curate 7 recommendations for your senses.

SEE: a visual recommendation (exhibit, film, book)
HEAR: an auditory invitation (music, podcast, nature)
SMELL: an olfactory experience (botanical, food, alchemy)
TASTE: a culinary suggestion (art, recipe, specialty food)
TOUCH: a tactile play (nature, textures, creative prompts)
BALANCE: a contemplative meditation (art, guided audio)
ENVISION: a symbolic vision (original artwork) 

Words by Etel Adnan, captured by Hans Ulrich Obrist
