Synaesthesia, the blending of different modalities of sense perception (like seeing numbers represented by colors, or tasting sounds), is one of those baffling mental conditions, the understanding of which has shed tremendous amounts of light into the workings of the brain. V.S. Ramachandran, for instance, has developed a fascinating theory of aesthetics based on this phenomenon.

Instead of adopting the traditional method of representing sounds as visual impressions, the following short film portrays the phenomenon of crossed senses conceptually in a stunning display of colors, textures and sounds, which I hope you'll find fascinating and thought-provoking.

Are you a synesthete?
