Description

This design used the neurological phenomenon of synesthesia as an inspiration for creating the textile print. The design challenge sought to emulate this phenomenon through the creation of a textile print, which embodies color hearing through the depiction of sound as color. This type of emulation is known as psychomimicry. The song Bridal Chorus was used as a road map for creating the digital textile print. The end result is a striped digital print that visually depicts the sound of Bridal Chorus in color. Historical references were used as the inspiration for the color and silhouette.
