A smell tells me about a rotten lemon lying on the table. When I touch it I can feel my finger piercing its soft surface. I notice how little mould particles separate from the lemon and shine in the sun rays coming from the window. I sense a little lift in my spine, the feeling of floating softness expands itself through my body. For a moment I'm hovering with the dust.
Keltanen arrises from the moment when our senses get tangled and form synaesthetic experiences. It manifests a world where separating one sense from an another is no longer relevant and opens up a space where seeing is hearing and movement has colours.
