Anne Patterson

Performing Arts, 2006

Anne Patterson is a multi-disciplinary artist based in New York City. Possessing synesthesia, her sensory perceptions overlap; meaning that when Patterson hears sound, she sees color and shape. Trained as an architect and theater production designer, this unique combination of senses combines to create an artistic practice, hovering somewhere between the theatrical and the experiential. Working with with her team, Patterson creates large-scale installations for public spaces and orchestral performances.
