Watching paint dry can be pretty tedious. However, it turns out that watching paint run, crawl, trickle, stream, flow, bounce and coagulate is anything but.
Synaesthesia is the curious condition where there is a mingling of the senses. Hearing the word unicorn you might think of blue, whereas puppies might taste like tomato. Upon hearing a musical note a person with synaesthesia might see a colour, for example f-sharp might be red.
I wanted to explore this phenomena and over two days I shot thousands of individual paint drops and drips with a macro lens and a 5DMk2. I then taught myself after effects and assembled thousands of blobs, drips and flows into a synaesthetic kinetic abstract experiment .
