Simon van Wees
The elongated sculptures depict spoken consonants and vowels
Simon made bronze sculptures of photisms in Art school in 1996. Back then Simon didn't know about synaesthesia and called these sculptures “soundscapes”. It turns out that synaesthesia is a thing! In 2015 Simon found out about synaesthesia and got interviewed by Maureen Seaberg on Psychology Today. The elongated sculptures depict spoken consonants and vowels and the other ones depict 'houses' where sounds could linger if they wished to. Simon graduated in fine art in Den Bosch Netherlands in 1998. Simon performed at exhibitions with installations and music. For example 'Gentse Feesten and Boulevard Festival Den Bosch, July/Aug. In 1999 and at Avant Garde café's WORM Wunderbar Rotterdam and Weelde in 2019. Simon started composing classical music since 2005. Simon is also an illustrator.
