Between 2012 and 2014, 150 artists from around the world were asked to interpret each other’s work, in the vein of a game of “telephone.” They expressed their reactions in their respective mediums. Twenty-two images of Martha’s Vineyard were selected to represent every geographical location, season, and element of Island life. Photos were then given to twenty-two musicians, who were each asked to interpret a photo as a song. The songs were given to dancers for their interpretation, then to painters, perfumers, sculptors, and poets, until all the senses were represented. The result is a conversation about the essence of Martha’s Vineyard, the human experience, and the nature of truth.
Audience members are also invited to the "Festival of the Senses" on display at Midnight Farm, 44 Main Street, Vineyard Haven
