Multisensory Museum: Nuzhat Samreen

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, Nuzhat Samreen presents a translation of Jean Gabriel Domergue’s Nuit Blanche (1915), by creating an accessible and multisensory experience. She translates the artwork into a physical space creating an embodied experience and recreating the feeling of being In Paris during the 1900s.

Nuzhat Samreen (she/her) is from Calcutta, India. She is an UI/UX designer, dreamy idealist, typeface fanatic and turtleneck enthusiast. Currently studying Inclusive Design at OCAD University, she aims to cultivate accessibility and human-centered approach in her design process.
