Flowers are incredible forms that bring us to witness them in both smell and sight. These beautiful creatures, bearing both of these senses, often create cross sensory effects when one sense is not able to be present. For example, when we smell flowers in a product (soap, candles, etc), our brain creates the architecture of their visual presence in front of us. This also goes for when we see pictures of flowers that we cannot smell. .. our brain creates pathways to imagine the scent in our head, and therefore creates the ultimate battle of the senses.
This piece is entitled “City of Flowers”, and it visualizes Mickey, floating in a world of flowers we are able to witness by sight, but not in scent. These flowers float together, as if the entirety of it was a metropolis of nature, in where each flower was its own building, carrying millions of pollen grains as its residents.
This is the 10th and last of the “Battle of the Senses Series”, and registers as the 80th in the TENxTENxTEN
