Sensory Depravation/ Synesthesia Suit 1
When wearing this suit, the subject experiences complete blindness as well as a significant muffling of the sense of touch. Speakers within the hood allow the subject to hear the sounds produced by contact microphones at the end of the tentacle-like arm extensions. Right and left sides are differentiated only by pitch.
This work is intended to allow the user/subject to experience a type of forced synesthesia. It also requires that the subject experiences space through senses that are not primarily used as indicators of such.
The results from different subject's test runs will be recorded and analyzed for further evolutions of the suit.
