Exploring Taste and Smell

How might you describe the taste of salt or the scent of fresh lemons? How do these sensory experiences come into play when making art? This week we are thinking about the process of exploring in art. To kick off this exciting journey, we are heading to the kitchen to explore food! In the first two weeks of Summer Shake Up, we investigated how looking and listening inform an artist's process. Today, we are expanding upon the importance of the senses in artmaking by adding taste, touch, and smell. Artists pull from every corner of experience when making. Actively engaging all of our senses allows us to experience the world more fully, and as artists, we can draw upon these experiences and share them with others. And to sometimes be a little silly while doing just that...! Watch the two following videos, “Dial C for Coffee” and “Disaster Cooking with Molly!” for examples. Share your taste and smell explorations with us at #chinatiSSU or email us at education@chinati.org.

¿Como describirias el sabor de la sal o el aroma de limones frescos? ¿Como es que estas experiencias sensoriales juega un rol en la creación artística? Esta semana pensaremos en el proceso de explorar dentro del arte. Empezaremos este emocionante viaje en la cocina ¡Para explorar la comida! En las primeras semanas de Summer Shake Up investigamos cómo observar y escuchar informa nuestro proceso artístico. Hoy, expandimos en la importancia de los sentidos en la creación del arte al añadir el sentido del gusto, tacto y olfato. Los artista toman todo tipo de experiencias cuando crean. Al estar conscientes de todos nuestros sentidos podemos experimentar el mundo de una forma más llena, y como artistas podemos derivar de estas experiencias y compartirlas con otros ¡Y ser un poco chistosos al hacer eso! Mira los dos siguientes videos por ejemplo.Comparte tus exploraciones del sentido del gusto y olfato con nosotros usando el hashtag #chinatiSSU o por correo electronico a education@chinati .org #chinatiedu #chinatifoundation #museumfromhome

On today's episode of Disaster Cooking with Molly, Molly tastes three kinds of vinegar! Based off of today's making prompt, Molly created a mini "cooking show." Something that excites us about making art is the unique voice of each artist that shines through their art, even within our own education team! For example, Pearl's food tasting video was inspired by film noir and has a surrealist tone to it. Though Molly and Pearl both worked off the same prompt, their videos were super different! How can you make your exploring food video your own? En El episodio de hoy de ‘Desastres en la cocina con Molly,’ Molly prueba tres tipos de ¡Vinagre! Basándose en las instrucciones del dia de hoy, Molly creo un mini show de cocina. Also que nos emociona acerca del arte es, el brillo de la voz unica de casa artista en sus obras ¡Incluso entre nuestro grupo de educación! Por ejemplo el video de Pearl probando comida se inspira en un film ‘noir’ y tiene notas surrealistas. Aunque Molly y Pearl han trabajado siguiendo las mismas instrucciones ¡Sus videos son super diferentes! ¿Cómo harás tu video explorando comida? #chinatissu #chinatiedu #chinatifoundation
