Synesthetic Media and Immersive Entertainment

Synesthesia in relationship to immersion is the modal blending of communication mediums to stimulate crossed sensations for an audience. This idea of stimulating all of the senses includes visual, auditory, olfactory, tactatial, gustorial, equilibrial, thermal and kinesthetic. The goal is to stimulate the observer by connecting pathways to various sensory layers in a way that alters the perception of reality and envelops observers in the experience. This is a transformational medium of artistic expression when combined with a dynamic narrative which engages a sense of agency through interactive participation. Thus the creation of a new form of immersive creative expression, Synesthetic Media.
