"Natural Science Approach to Synesthesia. (Picking my brain)"

Shown at Oslo Art Academy's Christmas Calendar Dec.22. 2010, the project is based upon human's explicit need to put the world into a system and the challenges, and the possible lack of equipment or knowledge, natural science meet in order to describe all human phenomena.
The photos are MR-scans of the artist's brain done for an experiment by students in cognitive neurology at the University of Oslo.

Can not help myself quoting from Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus by Ludwig Wittgenstein
«4.113 Philosophy sets limits to the much disputed sphere of natural science»

Synesthesia is explained as a condition which has an impact on the senses; e.g. you experience music, letters or numbers as shapes and colours or vice versa.

Take a look at the whole exhibition here.
