Residual Sensory Imprint ...

I think I might have invented this term. At the beginning of Covid when we weren't able to photograph and paint dancers in a live situation, Jeannie said that painting from a photograph wasn't the same because normally, she would have a sense memory of the live experience: sound, smell, visual impressions that were contributory factors in creating the movement in her artwork. I suggested the term 'residual sensory imprint' and immediately thought...Wow, that sounds clever! If it is actually a thing then who invented it and if not, I hereby claim it!
