An Instructional Film on Synesthesia!

Click here for Steffie’s Profile.

I thought I was an organized person until I met Steffie Tomson. Not only is her physical world covered in to-do lists (literally on her cup, the walls, and tabletops of her office), but her mind is the world’s best organizer. Just take a look at the instructional video in the player above and see for yourself!

Every number, day of the week, week of the month, and month of the year has its own color and location. The concepts that we know of as date and time are tangible things that have personality and shape. The rest of us have to buy iPads to experience our metaphysical world as concretely and colorfully as Steffie does. Come to think of it, if Apple could sleekly package Steffie’s brain into an iMind, I’d probably be the first in line to buy it.

    When Laura is not learning how to play the shofar, wrestle, cheer, skate, and be a synesthete, she is also a producer, writer, and performer in NYC. Laura has associate-produced several segments for NOVA ScienceNOW and “Secret Life”; writes, produces, and appears in comedic web shorts for LandlineTV; and also performs long-form improv comedy at the Upright Citizen’s Brigade Theatre. Laura came very close to being a Biology major at Tufts University, but opted to be a Psychology major instead so that she could learn to read people’s minds.
