Connecting directly onto the previous project, “The Color of Sound”, which dealt with the relationship between the audible and the visual, the artist adds another phenomenon of observtion to the exploration process – the sense of touch. Tactility now seems like another solution that ties together all the work which is inspired by corresponding literary work. Accentuated by the use and projection of texts onto a material by the use of the Braille alphabet, it is now oriented towards the audience to which the sense of touch is primary. The sensation and the feeling of the initial literary impulse is individually intertwined in every work in a literary sense (through the visual part of the work), the tactile (just by touching the Braille alphabet) and audibly (through the use of music).
The copying and connecting of effects of sensual perception on the trail of a synesthesic moment in it's projected unity now becomes accessible to the viewer, listener and those that experience it by sense of touch, at the same time. The works inspired by fragmented texts of a specially selected content which can be experienced multi-perceptually, by use of their unified multi-sensual language, have the aim to connect the impressions which will be felt by various consumers of the works, in correlation to which sense they use as their primary sense. The materials of the seven artist installations: cardboard, styrofoam, various metals, printed panels and led lamps also participate in the creation of this multi-sensual impression through the various characteristics of their chemical constitution, temperature and the variable, sensually conditioned illumination through led lamps which control it.
