Graphemes in Disneyland

With one of its doodles Google paid homage to Mary Blair, one of Walt Disney's visual artists. CSM correspondent Eoin O'Carroll recalled that Ms. Blair's "style wasn't limited to one sense; her colors also sang." Was her creativity shared by many synesthetes?

Learn about their condition, called synesthesia, and enjoy a video of a clip from a the 1944 animated film "The Three Caballeros," supervised by Ms. Blair, in the CSM Innovation post.

My daughter has this condition. She did not realize it until she was playing trivial pursuit with a friend. The answer to a question was synasthesia...my daughter thought everyone thought in "colors".....btw her IQ is around 160.
