«Synesthesia» introduces an ongoing research project on the photographic transposition of scents and smells in photography. 

 

By using a custum modified scanner, the light slowly draw an image that is the result of a synesthete evocation. The smell of burnt toast translates in green and shivering shape, while the smell of banana is a deep blue rounded shape with brown contours. These long exposures gives time to create compositions according to the shapes and colors that are experienced by synesthetes. 

 

The photographic picture, as an extension of the person's inner perception, is shown in the context of translating the sense of smell through the sense of sight. As the latent mind image translate into a photography, the results emerge in a perceptible feeling, creating a mind photography, a synesthesic visual translation of smells.
