WOW... I LOVE this question... so much to think about. Take music for instance.. an example.. Enya's haunting music of Celtic masterpieces.. close your eyes and "see" it in your heart.. Very emotive and visual for me... and from this, i find inspiration in my paintings. Enya is most often my choice of music to paint to. Another example.. The Corrs with their haunting Celtic folk music, takes me to places i will only ever "see" in my minds eye.... I guess i can't really express to you,unless you have felt this way too, just how it makes me feel, when what i am hearing comes out in my artworks. Kind of like the music and i become one.. there is no beginning or end.. until i have to come back to reality and the land of being half asleep and doing what i "have" to do... I feel so "alive" when i am one with art and music... Somehow it allows me to paint from my heart. So yes.. i have painted portraits to the "Sound of Music"..
What would it look like in every day life?.. Imagination run wild.
Would it flow like rivers down a motorway?.. Yes.. once again.. imaginings of magical happenings all around you just from "seeing" with different eyes.
Would space be still black.. Space is not black at all... When i think of space... and i don't mean outer space.. space around you.. is full of light if that is what is inside of you.
Would a laugh look like a (((Hug)))?... MOST definately. And a (((Hug))) would sound like the most beautiful laughter.
A baby's chuckle like a (((gentle Hug)))?... OH YES. The most precious sound of all. You can "see" the Love in your babies sweet laughter. It joins their soul with yours.
One last example.. Have you ever noticed how you can hear someone laugh from a distance, but they are out of your vision, but you can still "see" it in your minds eye.
Listen to this ((((HUG)))) from me to you. It is sent with a smile that i know you can hear. (-:
