Sensory Experience

Sensory : Relating to sensation or the physical senses; transmitted or perceived by the senses:sensory input
Oxford Dictionary. 2015
Sensory is simple to explain. It is the emotion and feeling created through a medium, that uses our basic human senses. Such as sound, sight, touch, taste and smell. When I think about sensory in media, it is not solely on the narrative but all the layers that have been built up to the mise-en-scene. The sound and the visual submerges us, with our senses. The clever use of editing narrative and shot techniques is what gives us a concept of time and feeling. It gets most interesting when you break this down further, when looking at specific documentaries and ethnography films
