Sensory Orders is an exhibition, online and print project examining the different orders of sense making taking place under our (current) conditions of extreme precarity and uncertainty. Twenty five international artists, scholars and researchers respond to how different orders – the /symbolic/ realm of language and culture, the /technological /realm of machines and the /organic /realm of viruses, plants, animals and the physical-chemical matter of the earth itself – sense on and affect each other.
