Black Sheep Beautiful is Kari Faherty, an artist and synesthete currently based in Washington, DC.
Synesthetes are people with the neurological condition Synesthesia. It is a condition in which two or more of a person’s five senses are mixed up together. A person may feel sound, or taste smells, or hear color.
I’m one such person. I hear color. My brain processes noise not only as sound, but also as color. All noise produces a color show in my mind’s eye. These colors become my art – a beautiful, abstract representation of moments, people, and life.
