Synaesthesia is a neurological phenomenon in which stimulation of one sense leads to automatic, involuntary experiences in a second sense.
This garden is contained within a white canvas dome, representing the inside of a synaesthete’s head. Visitors to the garden enter the dome. Once inside, the garden is washed with different coloured lights in response to trigger words that are projected onto the inside of the dome echoing the multisensory experiences of a synaesthete. Specially commissioned sculptures and paving materials such as glass and mirror will enhance the lighting effects and the visitor’s experiences. All-white flowers are used, along with a profusion of silver and variegated foliage. The planting chosen will maximise the effects of the coloured LED lights and will include a range of perennials and annuals.
