Some pictures from the rally today at Columbia. So much wonderful support for my sister and I! Emma and I are truly grateful to everyone who came, and everyone who was there in spirit.

This honestly makes me so emotional.

Source: Understanding the phenomenon of synesthesia.

Follow Francesca Mura on Pinterest

I experience forms of this. 

I have grapheme-color synesthesia. I made a post about it, like, a year ago. Where did I put that thing? Anyway, I’m an associator. :D

I remember reading about this in horrible science when I was young. There was a guy could apparently remember everything in his life due to synesthesia. I also remember he once told someone: “What a crumbly yellow voice you have!”

No formal diagnosis but ordinal-linguistic personification represent! It’s letters, numerals, and months for me. Letters are the strongest one.

reblogging with all the crap because it has the source but oh hey, i’m actually confirmed by a doctor to have this. it’s the most frustratingly beautiful thing.

I met a guy once who was a grapheme-color synesthete (associator) who was also a horror writer. Very interesting conversation, that.

OMFGOD. I never knew that the way I perceive numbers might be that. I never could explain to anyone how I percieve numbers, like they are a system with a place for each of them and how much easier for me is to learn placement and directions of the cyphers in a number, than actual symbols.Whoa. Wicked.

BTW, my map is 3D XD

I would like to make a public service announcement on this piece of shit information floating around the internet. I’m NOT going to take pot shots at an artist’s personal palette but this is just misinformation to thousands of other people out there who may or may not know better.
Number one. IF YOU ARE PAINTING, YOU’RE NOT REFERENCING A DIGITAL SWATCH. So first of all, you need to know where paint comes from. I dont even know where to start with this. I mean seriously, the statement about not being able to make pure, strong colours with cadmiums is just so full of ignorance, I don’t even know where to start. 
If you need visual evidence, let’s take a look at this picture 
This picture was invented before CMYK ever came around, tbh. Too bad Klimt is dead or else he would attest to this just like EVERY OTHER TRADITIONAL PAINTER will. 
Mixing colours is not magic nor is it as easy as picking colours from a digital swatch. It takes practice to understand how certain colours react with one another, employ painting techniques such as not mixing white with every goddamn colour to lighten a hue. 
Let’s take another look at a somewhat LESS brightly paintedpiece.

The saturation is not nearly as bright but the chroma is pure. There are no muddy colours, nothing is brown where it was not meant to be. Because Kandinsky knows how to mix colours. It didn’t happen overnight nor was he born with that knowledge. It was years and years of practise and work.
Even Klee knew what was up. He was not a master artist by any means but he worked goddamn hard at it and look what he created.


Here’s another Klimt because we all love him so:

CMYK exists because it does not know how to replicate the natural pigments of paint that can reflect light. It’s a beautiful, beautiful fake at best. I love CMYK. I even want to get a tattoo that says CMYK. But it is by no means the one and only. 
So PLEASE. PLEASE EDUCATE YOURSELF AND CROSS REFERENCE YOUR COLOUR THEORY BEFORE YOU BUY INTO THIS GARBAGE. NEWTON KNEW WHAT HE WAS TALKING ABOUT WHEN HE MADE THE COLOUR WHEEL GUYS.
PAINTERS SPEAK OUT FOR OUR BELOVED COLOUR WHEEL! REBLOG AND REPOST! Whoo!

EDIT// Additionally, I re-read that ignorant infographic or whatever and have come to realize that the artist classifies pthalo blue/green and hansa yellow as CMYK. That is not CMYK guys. CMYK is used for digital prints because you can’t use paint. Duh. God, that information is so wrong, it wasn’t even worth making this post.
EDIT 2// Wow this took off like crazy. I’d like to clarify that CMY(K) is a printing process not Cyan, Magenta and Yellow in painting processes. I totes understand the necessity to use the more vibrant hues of CMY but in context to the original post, I would like to state that I understood that to be in reference to CMYK from design/pantone based inks that don’t necessarily work in a traditional paint format. And I love electric colours just as much as the next person but RYB is not to be entirely discounted because it’s old!
******
Alright, all, i’m going to make this one last edit before I wash my hands off this issue entirely lol:
#1: Here is the original post that this post was in reply to. 
#2: Lastly, just because RYB was invented in the days of yore does not make it any less true. Yes we have created synthetic colours, but they are ALL derivatives of RYB. There is a reason why gouache is not the same as oil paint and WHY designers use gouache instead of oil paint. Additive or subtractive, there is an inherent truth to RYB and I know that the original poster of the original infographic believes so too.
After all we are all for equal love of all colours because colours are one of the most beautiful things ever. The End.
