Synesthesia is a very power subject that tends to rotate through my work on a consistent basis. Regardless of whatever genre I’m trying to penetrate, the idea of crossing of the senses is a repetitive one. I do this, because in order to communicate effectively, I have to rely on other senses to pull the right idea hue wise to create the right effect
Art is a country where color is the primary language spoken. Color is my secondary language because I can’t see it, so speaking in the country of art is often met with pauses in converting the language into a code or sense that I can understand. In this piece “I’m Soda Popular”, it is a communication piece based on taste converted into color. Some of these tastes range from the understood to the ridiculously absurd. This piece idea came from No. 21 “The Definition of Character” in where I had to place objects relating to the color into the appropriate color shards. I had made a can of blueberry soda in one of the blue sectors, and got the idea to spread this into an entire grid.
