Description

“Synesthesia” is a multi-medium art show displaying how eight artists of different genres inspire each other. The first artist was asked to select a fortune cookie. They have two weeks to create a piece inspired by the fortune. The next artist will then see that creation and will have two weeks to design his own piece inspired by the artist before him (never having seen the fortune).

The next artist in the series will interpret that piece and then has two weeks to create a piece of his own. The next artist will interpret THAT piece and in two weeks will create his work from there. Then another artist interprets the preceding piece and the process will continue for four months involving a total of eight performing artists.

This game of “creative telephone” will culminate in an evening of their work performed live, in-sequence. The transitions will consist of a video montage of moments in response to the artist who just performed and glimpses into the initial impulses that sparked the inspiration of the next piece to come.
