Once at the bioscope while on the art tour students go through the process of - ▪ Sensation ▪ Stimulation ▪ Perception Through the reflexes of the 4 Major Senses - ▪ Vision Once you start to observe around through your sense of vision, the art and the light falling on it leaves an impact on how you feel. Lighting helps to not only see things but perceive things and influence your mood. ▪ Sound Now slowly you are glued to the background score which soothes your mind and influences your behavior as it affects all aspects of mind, body and brain. ▪ Aroma As time passes slowly you start feeling the aroma of a natural flavor taking you back to our roots. Its stimulation leaves a captivating experience for that period. ▪ Touch Surfaces of different materials have a different texture, hardness, and levels and as we touch them with our energy field around an interaction happens and depending upon the surface type, one goes through a range of emotions from calm, harsh, enticing, delighting, restless. Discussion also gave birth to number of Questions, which were explained by Er.Abhijit Salunke and Er.Parag Shirole.
