Multisensory Museum: Mingyan Wei

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, Mingyan Wei is presents a multisensory translation of Wassily Kandinsky's Grey Circle (1923). Using music, Lego bricks, and candies Mingyan invites you into Kandinsky's geometric world through the sound, taste and touch.

Mingyan looks away from the camera. They are pictured with long brown hair and a white shirt.


Mingyan Wei (she/her) is from Beijing, China. Currently, in her first year of Inclusive Design (M. Des) at OCAD University. She hopes to support the design industry by learning Inclusive Design.
