BARTERING WITH EVA-MARIA BOLZ IN MAY2017

eva10

We xchanged a month of our apartment in May 2017 for the art by Ms.Eva-Maria Bolz is an artist and book designer from Berlin.

The work of the Berlin artist and grapheme and lexical synaesthete Eva-Maria Bolz is dedicated to an exploration of the relationship between colour, text and perception. In her individual form of synaesthesia she feels an unchanging association of colours to numbers, letters, as well as whole words. Perception becomes a filter through which letters, words – text in itself – are translated into colours and transformed from a set of well-known characters into a message that can be detected by means of a particular synaesthetic sensibility. The art follows her subjective perception that colours and letters form a specific code through which a text can be translated into blocks of colour. Each letter corresponds to a specific colour. When the artist deliberately uses texts that contain intense colour descriptions such as Oscar Wilde’s The Rose, she asks us not only to explore the perceived differences, but also to experience the text through the eyes of a synaesthete.
