Elena Baturina Presents the Gallery of Senses

Elena Baturina, Founder of BE OPEN: “This is our first ever editorial project, the result of a one year research into the core of human nature. It was an attempt to open up the world of the senses. And this book is a celebration of our multi-sensory year, our year of sight, sound, smell, taste, touch and perhaps intuition. Itis a portable ‘Gallery of the Senses’. That was our brief to young creatives worldwide. In these pages, you can enjoy a wealth of interviews with key thinkers and makers of our time. All reveal a strong and emotional reaction to the senses. Their excitement around human perception is a powerful stimulus for developing their work. Perhaps it will stimulate your own.”
