Ekphrasis

One particular kind of visual description is also the oldest type of writing about art in the West.  Called ekphrasis, it was created by the Greeks.  The goal of this literary form is to make the reader envision the thing described as if it were physically present.  In many cases, however, the subject never actually existed, making the ekphrastic description a demonstration of both the creative imagination and the skill of the writer.  For most readers of famous Greek and Latin texts, it did not matter whether the subject was actual or imagined.  The texts were studied to form habits of thinking and writing, not as art historical evidence.9

SensoryMaps by Kate McLean // Smell Edinburgh.

Each one of us constructs our own impression of a city that is made up of a personal combination of sensory perceptions. The original objective of my Sensory Maps was to encourage visitors to a city to consider how their senses were affected by the place, and to ascertain the sensory memories they retain and recall of the city in question.

The idea for Sensory Maps derived from my research into location, emotion and the senses of touch and of smell. As I explored the unparalleled dark architecture of Edinburgh in late October sunshine, digging out from deep December snows and glimpsing lights through a thick March haar I discovered that while our visual sense dominates other elements are involved in creating our sense of where we are.

I am Kate McLean, an MFA student of Graphic Design at Edinburgh College of Art.
