This was a research paper/interactive art installation/endurance piece in which I spent three days in a gallery room of Bard College’s film department, writing my final paper for a psychoacoustics course about synesthesia, a neurological condition in which multiple senses can be perceived instantaneously (ex. sight + touch = a synesthete could feel a texture by looking at it). I was at the same time creating tactile audio-visual pieces that were mimetic of my sensory condition and cross-wired perception, as an entry point to my creative process. Visitors were encouraged to interact with the art, whether that be moving objects around, playing the instruments, or holding up color cards that I would improvise a music composition over based on the color. Since the condition is so intangible and variable from person to person, my goal here was to present it from my own experience and not draw any generalizations.
