For her current project Sense Correspondence Ines Lechleitner has invited artists,
scientists and writers to participate by sending her a description of a sensory experience in
drawing, sound or text. The material received by 45 contributors exists as an ongoing collection of ideas.


For the video Activations Lechleitner has selected drawings and sound recordings from this collection. These drawings and sound recordings are presented, responded to, activated and performed. Contributions are being combined into new compositions and are superposed with and answered by Lechleitner’s gestures, projected images and film excerpts.

In the Sense Correspondence project testimonies of synesthetic experiences are activated in order to create new work. It explores the passage from one sense to another as well as from one person to another. It’s an artistic interpretation and implies the circulation of sense- as significance and sensation.
