Title: Amorphous

About the Photo:

My mind prays to amorphous
Fill my holy trinity with obsidian
Drink the offering
Spill it in front of the sun
Let the shapes align
Pour it for all to see
Repeat Till my ritual is complete

This piece is about how shapes form in my mind with my synesthesia. Amorphous shapes, that change form, and make your mind wander what the shape will turn into next, leaving your mind to wander what you’re actually looking at.

Synesthesia is a neurological condition, where you experience one of your senses through another. For me when I listen to music I see color, and shape. I photograph while listening to music to find shapes, and to see what colors might look best in the landscape I’m looking at. I then add the colors back in post processing of the photograph.
