“I’m a person who experiences a thing called synaesthesia. There are different varieties of it, but it’s a thing where, when you listen to music, you see colours very vividly. I’ve had it my whole life but this year I started doing research into it and was like, actually that’s the thing I have!
There’s going to be a sound-scape to go with this piece, and it’s all about my response to how blue makes me feel and how I relate to it and past stories I associate with it. It’s all about colour association, but with a personal twist.
It’s been really really nice. The people have been fantastic, I have not a complaint in the world! Everyone has been really supportive and wonderful about the work that I want to make, but also pushing me in the right direction for what will progress my work. I’m staying here to do Illustration, which I’m so excited about.”
