Summary/Abstract: The center of consciousness of one’s existence and the existence of all other things and phenomena, is the experience of one’s own body. The interaction of all sensory systems and their unification in the unique, concrete awareness of one’s self and the world; form the integral experience, which finds its sublimated expression in art. Analogies, metaphors, symbols, meanings and cognition emerge from the neurophysiological systems of all our senses. However, the media virtual reality is audiovisual, with visual predominance. The other exteroceptive (touch, smell and taste), as well as interoceptive (visceral) and proprioceptive senses (information from muscles, sense of grounding) remain unstimulated and unemployed. Knowing that the formation and differentiation of experience, therefore development of creative potential is based on the richness and varietyof one’s perceptual and sensory basis, we’ll try to ifigure out the possible consequences of the reduction of our sensory experienceto two dominant senses: sight and hearing.
