The brief was to ‘Explore the world of Synesthesia.’ Synesthesia is commonly described as the joining of the senses. It’s too big of a subject for me to describe in a short paragraph, so here’s a wikipedia page or email me, I could talk for ages about it.
I invented the ‘Litmus Library’:
A common form of synesthesia is chromosthesia, where synesthetes see colour when they hear things. Similar to watching a music visualiser.
Using the same principle as a litmus test, sound waves from songs were drawn onto sheets of (toilet) paper and then water sucked through them to create unique visual identities of that song. Therefore ‘seeing’ music. A collection was made into a tangible library of music.
I loved doing this project; I made a great mess on my bedroom floor.
