Synesthesia is an involuntary joining in which the real information of one sense is accompanied by a perception in another sense. In addition to being involuntary, this additional perception is regarded by the synesthete as real, often outside the body, instead of imagined in the mind's eye. It also has some other interesting features that clearly separate it from artistic fancy or purple prose. Its reality and vividness are what make synesthesia so interesting in its violation of conventional perception. Synesthesia is also fascinating because logically it should not be a product of the human brain, where the evolutionary trend has been for increasing separation of function anatomically.

SandyCarlson has left a new comment on your post "dreaming": Lloyd, I am enjoying this literary glimpse into your creative mind. What is the total of it all? seems to me the eternal question of the artist. Posted by SandyCarlson to Lloyd's Art Info at 6:12 AM

Hi!I am sorry for not visiting your blog lately. I am extremely busy preparing for my first solo art show this September. What is synthesia? Your paintings are all looking good.
Sorry! I mean synesthesia?
