An Ode to Synaesthesia

An Ode to Synaesthesia is an experimental book project by Rachel Han exploring the peculiar condition of synaesthesia, in which an individuals’ senses are accompanied by the involuntary experience of one or more other senses. Some ‘sufferers’ for example said to be able to taste colours or shapes, or see sounds.

The book itself is created in the context of a dictionary, with the typography inside manipulated in a number of different ways to reflect the multi-sensory experience of synaesthesia. This is further referenced with the type-heavy exterior ‘chocolate bar’ wrapping linking to the idea of words you can taste.
