OOXXOO Exhibtion

On the 23rd of October OOXXOO’s exhibition of synesthetic art opened at the Take Courage Gallery in East London. It was refreshing to see such a variety of artwork and ideas around the concept of synesthesia displayed together. Though it is a relatively small show in a very contained space, it show covers an expanse of ideas which involve the spectator, listener and participant, who is invited to contemplate the work through many senses, as well as play in the creative process. It was fascinating to listen to the conversations of so many people -breathed in an out of the gallery- sharing their different views on synesthesia, art and interdisciplinary creativity, everyone expanding the ideas of others. The exhibition is on through to the 30th of October. To find out more about the exhibition and OOXXOO’s other work go to:

I just wanted to let you all know about a project that I curate and edit along with Joseph James Hales. It is called OOXXOO [] and is the product of both mine and Joe's interest in Synaesthesia. We are both artists based in South London and we are just about to have our third exhibition of work on the subject starting on the 23rd October at the Take Courage Gallery []. Currently we are exhibiting at the Lewisham Arthouse and previously we launched OOXXOO at the Courtyard in Soho [there is a video of this launch on the website in addition].

'Aleatory Composition' by Hoagy Houghton

We are open to submission from all artists, musicians and writers. We are especially interested to hear from anyone with Synaesthesia that might be interested in submitting work. We could possibly fit a couple of pieces in for the Take Courage exhibition on the 23rd if anyone is interested. You can contact me on This project is self funded with the eventual aim of creating a definitive book about Synaesthesia involving all types of content, for this we are looking for funding. You can download the first edition from the website and I would love to recieve any feedback on it. Please feel free to forward these details on to anyone whom you may feel would be interested in submitting work.

I'd like to say well done for Timothy for this resource, thanks for the link to our site on the left - I've followed some really interesting trails from this blog

Yours Sincerely

James Bulley
