This Artist With Synesthesia "Sees What She Hears" And Turns It Into Spectacular Art

Mellisa McCracken is an artist with a unique ability. She's able to see what she hears. She experiences a neurological phenomenon called Synesthesia and has since she was two. Most don't consider it a disorder or a problem, but a unique superpower.

"As a synesthete, the music I hear is translated into a flow of texture and colors. Synesthesia, although not disorientating, can sometimes leave me at odds trying to describe what I can see to others," Melissa wrote. "Having synesthesia isn't distracting or disorienting. It adds a unique vibrancy to the world I experience."

These are a handful of her pieces and the music they inspired. Enjoy.
