Unfurling the Unconscious
Unfurling the Unconscious was a delightful adventure of the senses that Kay Scorah and I ran at another Lab Experiment afternoon. The group created stories provoked by being exposed to different stimuli including touch, taste, sound, smell and imagery. All but the Picture – sight group were blindfolded. The Taste group experienced fresh English strawberries, the sound group listened to the sound of the sea recorded on Iona in Scotland. The smell group sniffed at star anise, and the touch group felt a smooth granite stone procured at the wonderful Creative Tapas in Avila Spain. Each person wrote down what the experience provoked for them. Then, in mixed groups, they weaved stories based on the short written phrases. Evocative stuff.
