An exhibition of works by artists from all around the world will be the centre of a cultural event about synesthesia, which will take place in Berlin in March and April 2012. The project requires the artists to work over a period of 3 months in an intense dialogue with a synesthete. The exhibited works aim to give insight into the synaesthetic world of ­perception from the very unique and subjective perspective of the individual artist.

Lecture: “Das neue Selbstverständnis des Künstlers” by Duane McDiarmid & Lori Esposito

Teaching Artists or art creating Teacher – what is profession and what dilettantism?

“Duane McDiarmid builds performative events in remote landscape sites. Lori Esposito and Duane have worked collaboratively on a number of occasions, most notably the “Where the fruits of Labor Reside”, a community participatory collaboration. Lori’s work was chosen for the cover of International Science Journal Cortex as a representation of synaesthesia. Her works on paper and paintings have been exhibited across the United States.”

Lori Esposito, Assistant Professor of Drawing at the Rhode Island School of Design and Duane McDiarmid, Associate Professor and Chair of Sculpture and Expanded Practice at the Ohio University, give an insight into their work as artist of the recent years.

In their dual role as Artists and Teachers Lori and Duane represend a modern form of self-understanding of the artist. The limitations of the terms Profession and Dilettantism thereby should be redefined.

Last weekend the conference Sinestesia 2012 took place in Almería, Spain. Neuro-scientists, Artists and researchers from all kind of backgrounds met in Almería, to discuss new approaches and recent evidences in the field of synesthesia.
I had the chance to present the project to a very diverse and interested public, furthermore I widened my knowledge on the synesthesia and got to know many interesting and wonderful people. I want to thank the organisators for inviting me and all the contributors for their ideas and the inspiring conversations.
