“Cinco Sentidos” is 18”x24” watercolor painting based
on the abstracted vision of human experiences in
public spaces of downtown Savannah. The word
“Derive” is originally old French; it means to trace from
a source of origin. The purpose of this assignment was
to experience Savannah in a distinct way instead of
how you would typically do when pursuing daily
activities. Every classmate was assigned to follow a
derive, or a path through Savannah with a direct
purpose. I focused on the five senses and how it would
lead me to understand the occupancy of public spaces.
My stroll began in River St. because I believe it is the
most active public space that evokes all five human
senses in a single location. The walk continued all the
way through five squares in downtown Savannah
including Wright, Elis, Johnson, and more.
