Synesthesia is a neurological phenomenon in which sensory experiences are blended, i.e. “seeing sounds” or “hearing colors.” Creating synesthetic experiences in people who don’t have synesthesia has been an area of artistic effort for centuries. With today’s modern technologies and artistic possibilities, we can create more multi-sensory artwork than ever before — integrating sight, sound, touch, smell, and other unique forms of sensory feedback. This workshop will investigate the history and latest developments in synesthesia in art, and explore how these methods and insights may be applied to various artistic disciplines.
