"Synesthesia is the involuntary stimulation of the senses produced by a unexpected source. See sounds, feel colors, hear geometric figures, smell moments... But once you have experienced that kind of sense connections hardly you will be able to perceive something with no associations. You are synesthetic locked."
One day, while learning 3d in a tutorial, I found an article that caught my attention, a new word to learn "Synesthesia". So I decide to put some sense to my tutorial tests.
I realized that we are exposed from a early age to all kind of situations that bring sensations, those give us experiences, bad or good ones. Colors, flavors, sounds… They all are stored in our memories. When we faced all kind of incentives we remember our experiences automatic and unconsciously, giving a bunch of qualifying adjectives to the things we perceived, The weird thing about this is that I'm not able to see colors with no feeling cold or heat, I can't hear a sound with no imagining forms, smelling scents with no seeing fruits, flowers, food. All of this creates a barrier of predisposition. How does it feel not to mixing senses? How to see a a color and not feeling anything?
I decided to shape some of my own synesthetic experiences. There are phrases in the video that represent the mind's conscious side (voice off) and some the subconscious one (icons, graphics).
The technique I used to realize this short is mainly a collage of 3d and real action video, these clips were taken from the vimeo'svimeo.com/groups/freehd Free HD Stock footage group. So I want to thank to Phil Fried, to share his useful material.
thanks for watching!!!
