The Six Senses



A transparent, black and white reproduction, 8″ diameter sphere. The Six Senses show the six senses of man becoming the six vanishing points that Termes uses in perspective. Plants take on the shapes of faces where the six projecting sets of lines vanish into the ear, eye, nose, tongue, finger tip and a spiral into the forehead of a man for the sixth sense. This piece shows what we sense is not so much outside as within ourselves. When this piece spins you find yourself entering the famous Termes Perspective Flip-you see as if you are inside rather than outside the sphere.
