Symposium: Sound and Scent in the Garden at Dumbarton Oaks

Date: 5/9/2014 - 5/10/2014

Type: Events

Location(s): District of Columbia

Description:

The 2014 Dumbarton Oaks symposium in Garden and Landscape Studies (May 9-10, 2014) is on the theme of sensory perception. While we often approach gardens as things to be seen—thus engaging the rational, intellectual part of the human brain—Sound and Scent in the Garden explores the more elusive experiences of sound and smell. Important dimensions of garden design and performance, and often having a powerful effect on the human body, these senses are ephemeral and can be difficult to study. The papers in the symposium explore the ways that the historical experience of sound and scent can be recuperated, and explain the meaning of those senses for landscape design, past and present.
