Where the Fish Live™ is the home of my ideas.
Enjoy this imaginative space where the senses intermix. Touch mingles with sound, and taste brings out fuller flavors in scented sights.
On this site, you can view how I
have translated my senses into books, films, artwork, food, and fashion/graphic/product design.
I am a synesthete. Synesthesia is a condition in which one type of stimulation, or sense, evokes the sensation of another. All the senses are mixed up and overlap. It is very hard on my medical conditions, but it is very interesting and beautiful for artistic and design expressions. Every day is a new experience and adventure through my senses. This has taught me to appreciate the beauty of life's simple pleasures. They are everywhere. They are in everyone. Even some rusty nails in a bucket have a simple and complex feeling all at once. Each angle of life feels different depending from where you stand and move. Light and shadow. When the senses come together they can reveal truths.
I love making things to show others fun ways to experience the simple pleasures of life. Children especially have the talent of finding these treasures. Usually they are right in front of you, or even invisible like the IMAGINATION! You can appreciate your own senses because you are unique, impossible to replace, blessed, and have the power to inspire and make all the little things in life good! Welcome and Enjoy! ~Dina
