Simply: it’s when the brain translates images as sounds; or sounds as colors; or taste as touch; or really any other situation you might interpret as crossed sensory wires. Synesthetes feel one sense as another sense. Artist Perry Hall calls his own synesthesia a “tic of perception.” Hall also wouldn’t call it a superpower: “It’s just like anything else that makes someone want to play music or make visual art,” he told Motherboard last week. Yet, he designed a pretty cool app with the the concept of synesthesia in mind, called Sonified."
