On February 18, at 7:30 p.m., The New School celebrates the opening of “Correlation Does Not Imply Causation,” a multimedia exhibition exploring the sensorial experience of synaesthesia—a neurological condition in which one sense is experienced as another. The exhibition grew out of three courses taught by New School faculty member and Parsons alumnus Ernesto Klar, whose own work focuses on this condition.

The exhibition draws from student work created in three of Klar’s fall 2008 courses in the Media Studies, Communication Design and Technology, and Art and Design History programs. Students explored the experiences of different senses through audio mapping, digital design, video production, and other technologies to produce work that evokes a multi-sensory experience. The resulting video, photography, painting, installation, and research-oriented student pieces will be exhibited alongside select works from The New School Art Collection.

The exhibition will be on view in the Arnold and Sheila Aronson Gallery at the Sheila C. Johnson Design Center through February 26. It is free and open to the public. Gallery hours are Monday-Friday: 10:00 a.m.-8:00 p.m. and Saturday-Sunday: 12:00- 6:00 p.m.
