Sensing Synaesthesia

James Hooton

“Synaesthesia is a neurological condition often referred to as the ‘union of the senses’ where at least two of the main five senses become involuntarily and automatically joined together. Sensing Synaesthesia is an interactive documentary, in which synaesthesia is explored from the unique perspective of my friend Lucy – a synaesthete. Lucy is an artist who runs a commission-based company called Mons Igneous, and uses her synaesthetic experiences to her advantage when painting, drawing and creating digital based art. This interactive documentary will explore how synaesthesia inspires Lucy, including the use of music and her ability to see sound and hear colour, creating an emotional and thematic response in the artwork she develops.”
