About the Project: Does a single image look the same to everyone? Can music take the universal into the personal? Each person’s experience will be as individual as their fingerprint. With this app the user becomes the explorer in an ongoing immersive experiment, playing with the perceived boundaries between image and music: to give the abstract meaning.
