Abstract

The author discusses her experiences as an artist and synesthete. She describes her synesthetic perceptions--her experiences of touch, sound and other sensory input in the form of often strikingly colorful visions. She explains the development of her awareness of her synesthesia and of methods and preferred techniques for communicating these experiences through painting and sculpture, thus allowing her to express what would otherwise not be fully expressible. The author finds that art inspired by synesthesia may convey information of significance to everyone, observing that more general aspects of perception may be illuminated by the study of synesthesia.
