The exhibition design, which included a “smell wall,” attempted to make tactile the sensory aspects (aroma, color, texture) of wine. Courtesy Matthew Millman What comes to mind when you encounter the term “sensory design”? Chances are it is an image: a rain room, a funky eating utensil, a conspicuously textured chair. But the way things actually feel, smell, even taste, is much harder to capture. This difficulty points to how deeply ingrained the tyranny of vision is. Might the other senses be the keys to unlocking broader empirical truths? Does the ocular-centric bias of art, architecture, and design actually preclude a deeper collective experience? Such questions are at the heart of the current Cooper Hewitt exhibition The Senses: Design Beyond Vision, curated by E..
