BOOK: Evers, Frans. The Academy of the Senses: Synesthetics in Science, Art and Education. Edited by Vincent W.J. van Gerven Oei, Joost Rekveld, Eric Parren. The Hague:ArtScience Interfaculty Press, 2012. 300 pages, English, paperback. A study of the scientific approaches to synesthesia, related to the psycho-physical research conducted by Evers during his studies at the university; an alternative art history of the twentieth century based on the double paradigm of Castel’s clavecin oculaire and Wagner’s Gesamtkunstwerk; and a full account of the genesis of the Interfaculty Image & Sound. To encompass this entire range of subject, Evers coined a new term, “synesthetics,” to denote the experience, creative force, and study of synesthesia. Provides anyone with an interest in the wondrous realm of multimedia arts and synesthesia as a creative force, whether student or professional, an introduction into the foundations and extensions of seeing sound and hearing colors throughout the centuries. (This book may also be purchased at our online store).
