Sensory Sense is an exhibition from alumni Becky Lyddon, the exhibition that will house experiential installations, workshops, talks and visiting artists on the autistic spectrum.
The exhibition aims to create better awareness and understanding of the autistic sensory world. Each installation offers an opportunity to experience what it may be like to have a sensory processing difficulty. The exhibition starts on UK Autism Awareness Day, 2nd April 2014.
This is Becky Lyddon’s first exhibition where she shows off her experiential installations, provides ‘spectacular tasters’ of training workshops she has developed to provide a clearer understanding of sensory processing disorders and invites along some of the leading autistic artists to exhibit their work. There will also be an interactive element of the exhibition where live link ups will take place with a Sensory Integration School in Mumbai, India.
Becky Lyddon, Founder of Sensory Spectacle hope that this exhibition will
“revolutionise the way that those with autism are seen and understood. The exhibition encourages you to learn about why people feel the way they do with over or under stimulation of the senses. One of my pieces of work, Being Ben, is a great example, of what its like to have an auditory processing difficulty. Interaction in the exhibition is a must and very much encouraged as this is how we perceive our surroundings and how it affects our understanding of them.”
