Why is Green a Red Word? is based on a long term artistic research project on the neurological based phenomenon synesthesia. Some people experience peculiar multi- sensory perceptions of for instants words or sounds and this book reflects on its relation to art, science and language. It presents essays and an archive of interviews and conceptual video works as well as posters. They are prints of a series of black ink drawings called Number Forms depicting how some people visualize numerals in a certain form in space.
