Prior to Sensoria, CPCC started a celebration of writers called the Spring Literary Festival. It was renamed Sensoria in 2006 to reflect its expansion into other area of the arts, celebrating a wide array of talent that is brought together in the spring. I am proud to be invited to help in this amazing celebration. This blog post will provide further resources for those that have inspired me and continue to do so today.
According to Wikipedia, though the definition of what constitutes art is disputed and has changed over time, general descriptions mention an idea of imaginative or technical skill stemming from human agency and creation. The nature of art and related concepts, such as creativity and interpretation, are explored in a branch of philosophy known as aesthetics.
We all interpret the world around us in various forms, Sensoria is a way to help visualize our surroundings in a more imaginative way and translate that into a photo, or a canvas, or even within our own minds.
May great photographers develop a way to imagine a scene, then create what they visualize into a medium to help capture their idea in order to share with others.
Sensoria is a way for me to do a live demonstration to help students at CPCC visualize and introduce a different way to interpret what they see in front of them.
