  • Slide one- totally black Slide 2 – current slide Slide three – “Senses Slide” like we had talked abuot…to help ground them in discussion.
  • Here’s a shitty version with clip art…made in 5 minutes. Use art historical images instead of clip art…?

  • Follow up with a quote that relates more to the syneaesthesia activities….Bring it into the painting he did for that one Schoenberg piece….wrestle with this new term…then bring in the Abstraction maybe?
