When colours and sounds collide.

As #humans we #interpret and construct our reality through our five #senses. Our #Ocular system sensing #light. Our #Auditory system sensing #sound. Our #Olfactory system detecting #smells. Our #Gustatory system #taste. Our #Somatosensory system detecting #pressure, #temperature and #pain.
