A Mix with Senses

A friend recently described a dinner where she immersed herself into a play with senses.  Dinner with seven people, no lights, no sight, lots of good food.  The purpose was to develop empathy for individuals who are blind, showing us how it may feel if we have no sight.

The idea of this design challenge is to mix up all five of our senses with a dinner between 7-10 strangers.  What’s it like to not have your sight, or no ability to taste…perhaps even not hear?  

The idea is to immerse participants into a round robin of sense mixup, they are expected to interact with people who lack a sense different from theirs.  Dinner will be provided, and learning is guaranteed.  

Afterall, your senses are indeed black and white.
