September 24-26, 2010
Dumbo Arts Festival, Brooklyn, NY

STAND ALONE GALLERY collaborated with Elizabeth Corkery to provide a unique view into the much
misunderstood condition known as synaesthesia.

SYNAESTHESIA; syn – “together”, aisthesis “sensation” The experience of one sense is accompanied
by the involuntary experience of one or more additional senses.

Drawing inspiration from the account of a female synaesthete who upon hearing the ignition noise of
her gas stove is flooded with visions of pulsating flowers, I IS FOR PULSATING FLOWERS consists
of a constructed environment where surfaces are overrun with vibrant repeats juxtaposing organic and
geometric designs. Combining screenprint, painting, textile and graphic design, the installation
generates a hyper-sensory experience within an environment that are at once familiar and irrational.
The “visual language” of synaesthesia - geometric forms, repeated shapes, tessellating patterns -
combines with abstracted floral motifs to both delight and unsettle.

This project is sponsored, in part, by the Greater New York Arts Development Fund of the
New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, administered by the Brooklyn Arts Council, Inc. (BAC).
