“Synesthesia: The Space Between” Is a Look/Listen at People Who Can See Music and Hear Colors

Synesthesia, the umbrella term for a range of neurological conditions where stimuli that traditionally trigger one sense trigger two or more, occasionally appears in the media as a freak show/weird-mutant-abilities type thing. But in Synesthesia: The Space Between, a short produced for Narrative.ly, author and synesthete Maureen Seaberg is given the space to give her own explanation of synesthesia—not just her personal experiences with it, but also its social and historical contexts as well. Filmmaking duo Drew and Chelsea Mose accompany Seaberg’s explanations with visual and sonic representations of her account, filling out the story to appeal to those of us that aren’t synesthetes.
