Multisensory Museum: Chloe Typert-Morrison

Hosted by Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO)

How can artists and designers create more multisensory experiences? OCADU Graduate Students in response to an Inclusive Design Multisensory Museum Course share their co-creative process of translating artworks in the AGO collection into multisensory objects. Students explore a wide variety of techniques to create an inclusive gallery experience in a series of Multisensory Museum Moments.

In this program, Chloe Typert-Morrison shares an immersive, accessible and digital interpretation of Tom Thomson’s A Northern Lake (1916). Transporting the viewers inside of the painting and into the tranquil scenery of Algonquin Park, she highlights each sense through a tactile room, an aromatic and flavourful tea, and an app that provides ambient auditory sounds and further details about the painting.

Chloe Typert-Morrison (she/her) is an User Experience designer from Toronto. As a self-proclaimed people enthusiast, she is passionate about helping others through design and is currently pursuing her masters in Inclusive Design at OCAD University.
