A Feast for The Eyes: Visualising Flavour-to-Vision Synesthesia
Authors: Gingrich, O. and Wu, M.
Conference: Siggraph 2020Abstract:
Flavour-to-vision synesthesia is a rare neurological phenomenon, where a person consistently and involuntarily visualises abstract shapes, colours, or even textures whilst tasting the flavours of food. As this rare condition is currently still largely unknown to and misunderstood by many, this project aims to gain an insight into perceptual experiences of those diagnosed with synesthesia (also known as synesthetes), and to creatively and convey this abstract concept to the general public in the form of an artefact.
