The Sensory and Perception Experience.

{:en}We have five senses, touch, sight, taste, smell, sound, and some argue that we have a 6th sense which could be love, imagination, spiritualism .etc..  Out of all the main senses, the most important one that can be argued would be our ability to see. We perceive up to 80 per cent of all impressions by means of our sight . And if other senses such as taste or smell stop working, it’s the eyes that best protect us from danger.

Yesterday I was able to be part of a unique experience to allow visitors to be blindfolded and experience a unique way of perceiving through other means than just their eyes.  We don’t know what people go through or feel for those that have visual impairments but through this little exhibit we experienced a little bit of that feeling, relying on other senses to try to create an image in our head. It is amazing how our sight plays in a lot of the things we eat, even though we rely on our sense of taste to eat things we rely on our sight to make up our minds whether food may taste good or not. When we hear things, we rely on our sense of hearing, but even that too can be altered by removing our ability to see, when you see watch television for example and the volume is low, sometimes you’re able to “listen” because your eyes can see the lips moving and the mind fills in the rest allowing you to understand, but close your eyes and all of a sudden you’re not able to understand what those actors say.

I have a new great profound respect for people with visual impairments thanks to this wonderful exhibit.  Take a look at some of the pictures below.

{:}{:es}Tenemos 5 sentidos, tocar, ver, saborear, oler, y oír y muchos discuten que tenemos un sexto sentido que podria ser el amor, la imaginacion, espiritualismo..etc.  De todos nuestros sentidos el mas importante (se puede descutir) es la habilidad de ver.  Nosotros percibimos un 80% de todas las cosas usando la vista y si cual quier de los otros sentidos dejan de funcionar, son los ojos que mejor nos protege de peligro.

Ayer participe en un experiencia única donde los visitantes se taparon los ojos y podrían sentir una manera distinta que usando los ojos. Nosotros no sabemos cuales son las dificultades de las personas que tienen discapacidades visuales y con este pequeño exhibición pudimos sentir un poco de eso, usando los otros sentidos para crear una imagen en la cabeza.  Es increíble como la vista es importante y parte de muchas cosas que comemos, aunque nosotros usamos el sentido del sabor, usamos la vista para decidir ya anteriormente si algo va saber bien o mal.  Cuando escuchamos sonidos, también necesitamos el uso de la vista, cuando ves television por ejemplo y el volumen esta bajo, nosotros escuchamos porque usamos la vista para determinar lo que dicen por viendo el gesto de las bocas, pero si te tapas los ojos ya no puedes entender lo que dicen.

He tenido un nuevo profundo respeto para las personas con discapacidades visuales gracias a este exhibición tan bello.  Miren un poco de las fotos que tome, abajo.
