Named after the phenomenon in which simulation of one sensory pathway elicits another sensory experience, Synesthesia is an abstract representation of how music travels through space. It uses sounds and colors to connect with participants, allowing them to simultaneously generate involuntary emotions and reactions. This installation celebrates the manifestation of sensory feelings and aspires to create an ambiance of diverse perceptions.
