How can artists and designers create more multisensory experiences? OCADU Graduate Students in response to an Inclusive Design Multisensory Museum Course share their co-creative process of translating artworks in the AGO collection into multisensory objects. Students explore a wide variety of techniques to create an inclusive gallery experience in a series of Multisensory Museum Moments.

In this program, Arsalan Akhtar shares a multi-sensory translation of Walter Trier’s ’s Exchanging Hearts Of Love (1977). Creating an interactive experience of love, the ambiance is represented in the artwork by using visual and auditory senses.

Arslan stands smiling with their arms crossed. They appear against a light beige backdrop, wearing a blue shirt unbuttoned at the top.

 

Arsalan Akhtar (he/him) is a Toronto-based interactive designer and digital marketer. Arsalan is pursuing a Master of Design in Digital futures at OCAD University (2021 cohort) where he explores the role of design and interactivity in public art.
