Webapp link

Follow Your Nose is a webapp created by artist Sam Ayre that you can use in our galleries. A random sequence of questions and statements will appear which will prompt you to trust your own feelings rather than  being influenced by other people’s opinions and perspectives.

Open the app, choose something in the exhibitions to look at and respond to as many questions and statements as you like. Follow your nose and see where your instincts take you!

The questions and statements are in English, Spanish, French, Turkish and Arabic.
