SENTRIX is an interactive public installation art created by five high school students with a passion for art (from Art Hope Foundation). The idea behind the project first started when they wanted to raise awareness of the large amount of deception in the world, which led to their thinking of how these deceptions happen. How do our experiences occur? How do we experience events? The answer is with our sense. With our senses we see the sunrise, we hear the birds chirp, we smell the fresh flowers, we taste the freshly baked bread and we touch the hairs of our pets. We have the power of our consciousness to remember these experiences. But what happens when those senses are tricked? What happens when our senses tell us one thing is happening when in reality, something entirely different is taking place? SENTRIX is the product of our attempt to express this idea.
The project was exhibited on Vancouver Art Gallery Plaza during 2014 TAWAINfest from August 31 to September 1.
I was one of five members of the design team. we worked collaboratively on coming up with ideas for the project. I made the initial scaled models and was greatly involved in the construction and manage of the project. My major assignment was the "Tastes sensation" booth. The project was a remarkable success after 4 months of hard work!
