Synesthesia: How to Create New Neural Pathways

Next time you’re listening to music, I challenge you to ask yourself, what would this look like? What color is Vivaldi’s Spring? What shapes make up Mozart’s Requiem? Beethoven’s Moonlight Sonata?

There’s no wrong answer and it’s a great way to connect more neural pathways.

What does it feel like to see music? What does music look like?

syn·es·the·sia [sin-uhs-thee-zhuh]  a sensation produced in one modality when a stimulus is applied to another modality, as when the hearing of a certain sound induces the visualization of a certain color.

We all have the imagination to decide what music looks like to us. To me, music has a bubbly quality in my mind’s eye, so I decided to explore that with a portrait of this lovely young women whose eyes are so captivating. So deep that maybe they can see in new ways, beyond limits of imposed by “reality.”

Thanks, dear readers, for taking the time to check out my work. Synesthesia prints are available in my Shop.
