Voyeurism stems from the French Term: voyeur, “one who looks.” However, this is only one out of the five possible ways we can interpret information. Our five senses allow us to absorb information as a full body experience. One out of every thousand individuals experience something called synesthesia,
which occurs when one type of stimulation evokes the sensation of another. For instance, a certain sound may trigger the visualization of an image or color. I used my five senses as the tools to gather content while my gift of synesthesia bridged the gaps and opened new relationships between what was around me and what I was taking in.
Throughout my daily travels around New York City, I began to document fragments of conversations, smells in the air, flavors of food, pieces of imagery, signage and textures. I created a small source folder where I would store my perceptions. The result became “SIX/SIX,” an ongoing series of work that uses my multi-sensory perceptions as means for gathering content.
