Synesthesia: The sound-vision connection

This thesis explores the visual representation of sound, and how it can be enhanced or disrupted by architectural forms. Transforming the entrance to Regent Street Cinema, hanging spatial forms visualise and interact with surrounding sounds, synaesthetically embodying and disrupting sound waves. As a result, the noise and disturbance from the outside world will diminish allowing visitors to complete the emotional transition from the real world to the movie world.
