Watch This Animated Synesthesia Simulation

February 28, 2013 | Eugene Reznik

Synesthesia is a neurological disorder (and/or gift depending on worldview) in which your five senses sometimes seem to have their wires crossed — you can hear color, see sound, so on and so forth. Oscar López Rocha‘s animation Synesthetic Locked, is a glitchy, screechy, 3D-ish stereoscopic simulation thereof, a dizzying RGB web of weird associations. No idea if it’s anything like real synesthesia, but it’s definitely hypnotic.
