Week 4 Day 3

I've pushed myself to do more experimentation, as I feel I have not done as much as I could have up to this point. Since most of my experimentation was done with screen prints, the  obvious choice was to use non screen print media. I've has this idea for a while, ever since part 1 painting, and it stuck me that its now or never to try things. By working in the print room a lot, I've met people from many different specialisms, who have told me at watching me screen print has given them screen print ideas of their own. They said its now or never to try out media, as they might not have the chance to use these facilities in the future due to their choice of BA. 

I like the work I produced here, as it visually communicates what I believe Synesthesia to be: a merging of the senses.

Initially I was not happy with the colour, the solution; wash it off and start again. I think these pieces demonstrate successful research into the visual representation of Synesthesia. I like the fact that I'm working with imagery of the mind, as this is where Synesthesia comes from. Looking at the cause of Synesthesia and where it comes from was inspired by talking to a FMP group members who talked about the origins of their own condition. The brain being a central image to them too. This has sparked ideas for more work, using the motif of the brain.
