Multisensory Museum: lea rose sebastianis

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.

Death Sowing Discord (1864) by Félicien Rops depicts Satan or Death as the destructive sower of discord. The seeds in Death’s apron are women, who, in Rops’ eyes, wreak havoc and chaos on the Paris city streets below. In this multisensory translation, lea rose sebastianis urges viewers to reconsider this misogynist rendition of the biblical Parable of the Sower. Instead of discarding the work, she hopes, through collaborative participatory practice, viewers can confront discord and explore it in a self-reflective process. Together, we will transform destruction into creation.

Lea appears in the center of the black and white image. She is smiling, looking into the camera lens. She wears a dark shirt which matches her dark hair.

 

lea rose sebastianis (she/they) is in the first year of her MFA in the Criticism and Curatorial Practice program at OCAD University. She is interested in video art, wellness, porous bodies, and the relationship between spiritual and material worlds. In her work, she is dedicated to cultivating more expansive creative communities.
