“Based on the sense of hear I took the image of a hammer hittlng an anvil and it creating a sound wave oscillating towards the ear. The hammer and anvil are also the name of two tiny bones in the inner ear that make hearing possible.” Niall Magee

“The Central structure of the sculpture is an abstracted mouth which is also a functioning Zoetrope. On the inside are animated frames showing a character eating on the run. The different textured swirls on the outside represent the different amazing tastes we could enjoy if only we gave ourselves time to enjoy our meals” Daniel Doyle

Smell

“Being given the sense of smell I chose to depict this rather abstract subject by approaching it from the point of view of memory. The sense of smell evokes memories more powerfully then the other senses. The girl in a meditative state smells various flowers she plucks, bringing different memories to savour and contemplate” Fergus Mulvany

“Let’s see the world through a magnifying glass or everybody see your eye as yourself. The image of a child symbolizes the beginning of research of a human being. The eyes gives an opportunity to explore the world by visual sense.Especially in childhood. The expression on the face of the child shows a crazy impression of surrounding. See you tomorrow!!” Sandis Kondrats
