Several months ago, I was contacted by a journalist based in London. Josh writes for Pigeons & Peacocks, a fashion magazine produced by University of the Arts. Issue #8, which is now available for purchase, explores sensory perception and how it impacts fashion. For his article, Josh was exploring synesthesia and sensory overload in terms of psychedelic drugs, and it’s correspondence with fashion, art and design.
The result of several week of correspondences is a great article, An Ayahuasca Sense of Fashion. While LSD was a fashionable drug during the 1970s to induce expanded forms of consciousness and creativity, ayahuasca is currently gaining popularity. A tea made in the Amazons, ayahuasca induces an experience that merges the senses together, much like synesthesia.
I hope you’ll take a moment to read the article. Issue #8 has several wonderful articles on synesthesia, fashion, and sensory perception. You can view several of the articles online. You can also listen to an accompanying soundtrack that illustrates how “fashion makes sense” Soundcloud.
