Icelandic Synaesthesia

The Icelandic Synaesthesia project consists of three compositions: painting, musical and fragrance, which together create a unique atmosphere of my impressions and experiences brought from my journey to Iceland. Colours, sounds and fragrances for me are three palettes, which penetrate and complement each other. Using them, I wanted to create an artistic message for reception with three senses. A great inspiration for me lies in cinema, where music accompanying moving pictures often is a self-standing work of art and complements the atmosphere.
