  • Research activities in IPAC

The research project Chromesthetic Painting Interactions (CPI) intends to study the use of digital technologies for the artistic appreciation of a certain collection of synthetic synesthetic paintings. Chromesthetic Painting Interactions is a project of a multidisciplinary research group that aims to investigate Synthetic Synesthetic Art and Digital Medias. This project intends to study the use of digital technologies for the artistic appreciation of a certain collection of synthetic synesthetic paintings. The digital technologies are used to improve multimodal interaction and enrich user experience. This project also investigates the potential use of these paintings in the fields of music education and music therapy.
