How I See It

Synaesthesia- the joining together of sensations that are normally experienced separately (University of Sussex, 2018). At least 4% of the population have a form of synaesthesia, but little of the condition is discussed within society day to day and many are still unaware of its existence. 

This project is a collaboration between myself and Anita, who has synaesthesia. Her synaesthesia manifests as every single word having a correlating internal image, some photographic and some 3D forms. Most are not a direct link to the word itself, with some words (mainly people's names) producing a more prominent image, which is easier to articulate than others. This is an ongoing process based project, learning about synaesthesia, articulation and representation through dialogue and photographic exchange.
