- Synesthesia is a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.
An exhibition in the Rijksmuseum that let’s you experience art by listening to it. What do the faces of Rembrandt or the waterlilies of Monet actually sound like?
By collaborating with someone who has Synesthesia (in this case that means seeing color when listening to music) and a composer the project of translating art into music came to life.
