Synesthesia

Synesthesia is the cross wiring of sensory perceptions. We believe by accessing as many senses as possible we open up the potentials for deeper interpretation.

We are inspired by surrealists such as Meret Oppenheim who created this synesthetic piece in 1936. (although we are not typically trying to achieve this particular sensation).
