Re/sense is a collaboration created by Diana Burgoyne (Canada) and Raewyn Turner (New Zealand). The work examines synthetic synaesthesia and anaesthesia of place. With the participation of international commercial perfumer, Louise Crouch, RE/SENSE utilizes a selection of synthetic fragrances relating synaesthetically to the colours of green. We have utilized a sensor that is sensitive to variations in the tone and intensity within the colour palette to create a responsive frequency generator creating sounds corresponding to the differing greens. The result is an audio-visual sketch of the colour green.
Re/sense was Co-Produced with the Banff New Media Institute 2009, exhibited and presented in MuVi2, in the Third Congress 2009 Synaesthesia: Science & Art, in Granada, Spain, Interactive Futures : Stereo, Vancouver 2009, MiC Auckland 2010, and NZ Academy Fine Arts, Wellington2011
