In this Sensory Awareness classwe learned about and experienced seven senses, which included synesthesia and intuition in addition to thecommonly reerenced visual, auditory, kinesthetic, olactory, and gustatory senses. The purpose o this class was tobring into ones consciousness a richer experience o the senses and discover potential applications.</p><p>As designers, this new level o awareness will be an asset or understanding clients, audiences and the designprocess rom ideation to inal product and/or strategies.</p><p>SENSORY AWARENESS</p></li><li><p>8/10/2019 Sensory Awareness Process Book SCAD Lacoste 2014</p><p> 9/109</p><p>16 17</p><p>A sense by which light stimuli received by the eye are interpreted in the brain.</p><p>VISUAL</p></li><li><p>8/10/2019 Sensory Awareness Process Book SCAD Lacoste 2014</p><p> 10/109</p><p>18 19</p><p>The ability to perceive sound by detecting vibrations.</p><p>AUDITORY</p></li><li><p>8/10/2019 Sensory Awareness Process Book SCAD Lacoste 2014</p><p> 11/109</p><p>20 21</p><p>KINESTHESIA</p><p>A muscular response stimulated by bodily sensation which include somatic sensations and emotions.</p></li><li><p>8/10/2019 Sensory Awareness Process Book SCAD Lacoste 2014</p><p> 12/109</p><p>22 23</p><p>The sweet, sour, bitter, tangy, or salty quality o lavors that can be experienced when the taste buds are stimulatedon the tongue.</p><p>The perception o odor or scent through stimuli affecting the olactory and/or gustatory nerves.</p><p>*Taste and smell are paired because they are ofen intertwined into one experience.

Moreimportantly I think it has made me more sel-aware physically, creatively, mentally and emotionally. It hasincreased my understanding o how I personally relate to other organisms, how I it into and affect the granderschemes o things and the lesser schemes o things. I think this new understanding will help me design inhumanly, humanely, and naturally effective ways. As a ibers major and ceramics minor I work with adaptablemediums. I can affect people through my designs visually, tactilely, auditorily, intuitively, and perhaps through smelland taste, as well as countless other sensory experiences. I can either reach my audience directly or indirectly andI want to learn how I can best use design to appeal to people and communicate with them. I would like to conveycompletely what I desire them to see, hear, eel, know and so on.</p><p>Dionis Carter</p><p>1 3 421</p></li><li><p>8/10/2019 Sensory Awareness Process Book SCAD Lacoste 2014</p><p> 36/109</p><p>7170</p><p>Reach out beore youStretch past your stability</p><p>Your center holds you</p><p>Waves break, echoes ormSound is cast shadow and lightSwelling resonance</p><p>7.

I got to understand hownature works in its environment and the human aspects o senses. I have learned all o the senses that humans haveand how organisms use those senses to lourish in their environment. Inspirations rom nature and all o the sensesthat I have learned about will help me urther my education in Industrial Design and inspire new creative unctiondesigns. Afer this class I will continue to go out in nature and use all o my senses to get inspired.</p><p>Grant Flinn</p></li><li><p>8/10/2019 Sensory Awareness Process Book SCAD Lacoste 2014</p><p> 38/109</p></li><li><p>8/10/2019 Sensory Awareness Process Book SCAD Lacoste 2014</p><p> 39/109</p><p>76 77</p><p>Industrial Design Major</p><p>I thought that this class was only going to ocus on senses that we use in order to accomplish mundane tasks, i.e.visual, auditory, gustatory, etc., and how we could apply them to inorm our users with our products. I was excitedto learn how to apply this knowledge and I was quite surprised by the direction that the class went. I was not at allmentally prepared or the amount o relection and introspective thought that was required o me and was takenaback at the irst class. I think that it mentally shocked my body to become attuned to notice smaller changes withinmysel and all o my senses. It is easier or me to now isolate those senses and understand what they are doing tome. The culminating point o the class or me was the very last exercise that we did at the top o the Chateau. Asiderom one other time in my lie that was the most spiritual experience I had ever had and it lef me mentally andemotionally elated. Going orward with what I have learned in this class is that in order to make a lasting impressionyou not only have to touch people with their immediate senses in more than one way, you also have to call upontheir nostalgia and intuition to make the product irreplaceable.</p><p>Josh Logreen</p><p>21</p></li><li><p>8/10/2019 Sensory Awareness Process Book SCAD Lacoste 2014</p><p> 40/109</p><p>7978</p><p>Singular points rollingComing closer to the edgeSlowly, dont all off</p><p>6.
