The prospective audience can be given a unique chance to reinvigorate their emotional relationship to familiar art through multisensory enhancement as well as accommodate a perspective of appreciating innovative art through the less-engaged sensory modes – using teeth sound conduction for listening to vintage, archive recordings, dancing to aromas (as was done in the Moscow Symposium) or sculpting to the sound of unknown languages. Thus, art-making and art perception will derive its empowerment from bridging the experiential gap to foster existential compassion and species empathy and redefine the value of multifaceted manifestations of the human mind.
