Tasty Tips

Synesthesia is a rare neurological phenomenon that causes one of the senses, to automatically trigger another sense. For this project, I worked with James Wannerton who has a rare form of synesthesia called lexical-gustatory synesthesia. A condition that enables him to taste words, shapes and colours. (my name tasted of salty ham & lime?!)

With James input, I created a set of “synesthesia” colouring pencils. thereby naming each colour after what it tasted like to James.
