Synaesthesia is a “neurological condition in which stimulation of one sensory or cognitive pathway leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sensory or cognitive pathway.” (Wikipedia)


In other words, sight can cross with the sense of smell, touch, sound, or taste.

So when you see a color, can you taste it?

What does it taste like?

It is a rare occurrence but there are some people that can actually taste color when they see it.

Then there are others (most of us) that can associate a color with a certain taste based on experiences.

I have yet to figure out which one I am because I find certain colors very yummy.

And they make me hungry.

But perhaps this explains why I love food so much.

Or maybe why I love to paint.
