Synescape is a VR installation that tells the story of people affected by chromesthesia: a brain condition that allow people to ‘see’ music. The user is immerse in an interactive synesthetic environment where they can experience in first person what really means to see music.
Naomi will guide you trough the experience sharing her personal story and for the first time she’ll be also able to share with the viewer what music looks like to her. The project has been granted by Stimulering Fonds. I started this project as an investigation of storytelling in virtual reality taking the chance to fuse my visual and music aesthetic together.
