Synesthesia is a neurological disorder (and/or gift depending on worldview) in which your five senses sometimes seem to have their wires crossed — you can hear color, see sound, so on and so forth.
Oscar López Rocha‘s animation Synesthetic Locked, is a glitchy, screechy, 3D-ish stereoscopic simulation thereof, a dizzying RGB web of weird associations. No idea if it’s anything like real synesthesia, but it’s definitely hypnotic.
Experiences in which the senses are intermingled in usual ways are a common motif in the descriptions that mystics provide of their unordinary sensory experiences. This workshop examines the phenomenon of synaesthesia from a multi-disciplinary perspective in order to advance our understanding of the relationship between synaesthesia, metaphor, creativity, and religious and artistic practices.
