APS All Access: Firestone CLC Joyce Yang Art Project

Image of Joyce Yang VideoPatrick Dougherty and students Camille, Sandra and Maria put together an art project inspired by acclaimed pianist Joyce Yang. Joyce has a unique condition known as Synesthia that causes her to attribute different senses to unrelated things. For example, she could desribe a "word" as having a "taste" or a "sound" as having a "color." Joyce has a few videos on YouTube describing how she sees and memorizes music. Patrick and his students watched this video and were inspired to create a piece to illustrate how she sees music and honor her with it. The final piece will be on exhibit in E. J. Thomas Hall on September 11 when Joyce performs.
