Senses Tile


What does your home look like? taste like? sound like? feel like? smell like?

Each tile represents a sense and through them invite us to connect with what it represents as a reminder of what our inner self is capable to feel.

A very old metaphor talks about humans being cities where the senses are compared with doors and windows that give access to the external world and its comprehension.
Our houses defines us, as it is outside is inside.
