Project summary:

I'm a painter who has used art to help me to overcome M.E. and agoraphobia. My recent work became increasingly autobiographical and seems to have come to a conclusion with my last exhibition, a 40 metre long installation piece based on my diaries. I now feel confident enough to push my boundaries and break from my solitary working practice and involve others in collaborative work.

My technique of painting, I call ‘predetermined randomness’, uses letters to dictate the position of colours on a grid. Whenever I explain this a number of people ask me if I have synesthesia (one form is where people see letters/words/numbers as colours). I do not, but I would like to investigate this condition further and see if I can turn peoples experience with it into works of art. I would use AA2A to research synesthesia and explore different media, techniques and outcomes, whether sticking to painting or involving digital technologies.

Ultimately, I would like to see if someone with synesthesia can 'read' their painting and if it also works as a coherent piece of art. I would also be interested in producing a painting with the same basis and seeing how my interpretation differs.
