visual art, image perception; vision; synesthesia; immersion; experience

Blurring the frontiers between the real world and imagery, images increasingly lose their limits, becoming windows onto enhanced sensory experiences, through synesthetic immersion.

Improved to enhance the viewer's synesthetic immersion, images are increasingly designed to stimulate the senses. From stone carved still images to 4D multimedia contents with tailored sensory effects, technology allowed improving mankind's viewing experience. With the increasing use of localization devices, media resources tend to integrate narratives from different mobile platforms, promoting an intense immersion, new forms of information treatment and ultimately, meaningful experiences.
