Synaesthesia

Essay 112 • Dec 12th 2016

Synaesthesia is described to be the confusion of senses; like hearing color or feeling pain from a sound. According to NPR 1, in every 27 people have some form of synaesthesia. 

Words, music, our consciousness, our body, indeed the entire universe is nothing more than the vibration of energy. The rate this energy vibrates is called the frequency. Rocks, emotions, people and even planets differ from each other, and everything else, because of their unique vibrational frequency. Therefore by 'tuning' your brain to certain frequencies using brainwave entertainment and other techniques, it is possible to experience different states of consciousness. This series of images explores this phenomenon in a variety of different states based off of color theory, experimentation, and exploration of the imagination.

Ashley G Garner is a conceptual photographer and filmmaker residing in New York City. Raised in the foothills of North Carolina an adoration with fantasy and the sublime effect were bred. Coupled with degrees in photography and art history her work is a balance between structured forms and poetic rebellion and dances with many conversations that stretch from the social to the metaphysical world with themes of duality, mythology, and transcendental symbolism.Floral artist: MIHALISNYC
