Formed through an alliance partnership,
this experimental R&D lab studies
synesthesia and related experiences.
We actively partner with companies, researchers,
scientists, artists and other like-minded
collaborators to bring unique ideas to life.
Synesthesia X1 - 2.44 feat. evala (See by Your Ears) at Media Ambition Tokyo (2019)
Letting go of your body on this device equipped with 44 vibrating actuators makes you feel as if you’re wrapped in a world of sounds, lights and vibrations. A joint project by Enhance, Rhizomatiks, featuring sound artist evala (See by Your Ears) who introduces a new musical experience where your body itself becomes the medium. Your consciousness is honed as you naturally become a part of the flow.
“Synesthesia Whale” at VENT, an art project at Oya History Museum (2018)
Based on the theme of perception expansion, we showcased a prototype “Synesthesia Whale” ̶ an experiential art piece where user interaction produces countless particles reacting with sound, eventually taking shape as a gigantic whale swimming through the open space of the Oya Museum.
The Synesthesia Suit was originally conceptualized and developed for Rez Infinite (2016) -- a suit capable of augmenting the visio-auditory sensory experiences with the sense of touch.
The suit is internally equipped with 26 actuators that vibrate along with the music and make the human body a conduit for soundwaves.
