Art installation: synesthesia – Paul Aloisi
This video documents “Synesthesia” a public art installation in Toronto, Canada by Paul Aloisi of Ideas in Places.
The mural’s composition was developed in response to sound recordings of trains passing over the site which were translated into a visual abstraction. This creative process is inspired by synesthesia, a phenomenon in which stimulation of one sense leads to automatic, involuntary experience in a second sense. This project explores a connection between vision and hearing.
