The Singapore Art Museum is proud to present Sensorium 360°: Contemporary Art and the Sensed World, an interactive exhibition of contemporary art that reveals the complexity of the human senses, and explores how sensory experiences locate us in understanding the world and knowing the self. 11 artists from Singapore and wider Asia – including Thailand, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia, and China – will give expression to 9 different senses, peeling back the multiple layers of sensory relationships that inform our personal well- being.

Sensorium 360° will run from 31 July 2014 to 22 October 2014 at the SAM. In addition to the exhibition, the museum will be holding parallel programmes including curatorial tours, educators’ talks, and sensory workshops.

SEPTEMBER 2014

Guest Talk: Listening to the Universe by Honor Harger

Date: Friday, 5 September 2014

Time: 7.30pm

Venue: Singapore Art Museum

Limited spaces. To pre-register, please email education@singaporeartmuseum.sg

For more information, please visit http://www.singaporeartmuseum.sg/programmes/index.html

In this talk, Honor Harger will explore the sounds of the sky, using art to connect her audience to the universe. Sound waves cannot propagate in the vacuum of space, and the stars and planets are not directly audible. However, radio waves emitted from celestial bodies can be turned into sound by ordinary radio receivers speakers that convert electrical signals into sound waves. Using this century-old process, the universe becomes ‘soundful’ — this is all possible due to the science of radio astronomy. This talk will show us how radio enables us to hear something which is physically present, but imperceptible to our senses.
