Cryptopology was a site-specific intervention at The Crypt of St. Pancras Parish Church aiming to establish an omni-sensorial immersive experience. The artwork invited the visitors into a maze of sensory engagement with an intention to evoke un-patterned feelings and create intimate experiences. Light, sound, scent, temperature and airflow created different thresholds and enclosures in space inviting the visitor to explore, engage and respond. Each chamber of the crypt focused on one sensory faculty namely olfactory, visual, haptic, and auditory. The interventions were set to target vision, proprioception, and thermoception, using air and its poetics as mediators in space.
CRYPTOPOLOGY was a project supported by UCA, INTERREG IVA (as part of the Recreate project) Research & Enterprise Program.
