Siana Altiise is a sensory artist who produces multisensory experiences at the intersection of technology, vocal performance and sounds from nature. She was born with an ability to experience sound in color, by way of a phenomena known as Synesthesia. This cross-wiring in the brain not only allows her to hear in color, but visualize emotions and personalities, while identifying emotions in figures and shapes. Though she refers to herself as a “Sensory Artist”, her aim is to create space and time for her audiences to relax, explore, and connect with themselves, in solitude, in community.
