MBBP Client Sally Taylor recently launched Consenses, a multidisciplinary art project. Taylor was inspired by the Indian fable about six blind men encountering an elephant. According to the fable, each man draws different conclusions based on his limited experience, showing that perception is never right or wrong. Similarly, in Taylor’s Consenses, an artist is given a work from another genre without any information about the piece and is asked to interpret it in a new piece. The resulting work is passed to another creator from a different field who offers a new interpretation, and so on until all of the senses are engaged.
So far, more than 140 artists from 23 countries have been involved in Consenses.
Check out Consenses at 212 Elm St. in Somerville from Sept. 26 to Oct. 7 and at Club Oberon in Cambridge from Sept. 29 to Oct. 1.
Great work, Sally!
