Synesthesia: “A neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.”

The intent of this work is to provoke perception through the systems that allow living things to connect. The contrast created between the visual themes of disparate materials such as the Shibori fabric; a domestic process as well a visual display of the fractal concepts contained in matter. The wire as ‘drawing in space’ aims to play with perceptions between the two-dimensional and three-dimensional realms. The paper-negative photographs are objects of process embedded with allusive imagery. As a union of the senses, this piece is meant to evoke peripheral memory of the experience of beauty.
