A flattened ontology of the sensorium underlies “A synesthete's still life”: the traditional vertical hierarchy between “primary” and “secondary” senses is relativized and horizontal crossmodal associations that translate taste into the other sensory modalities are foregrounded. Bitter, salty, sour and sweet incarnations of Gershwin's "Rhapsody in Blue" emerge amidst taste-inspired objects and a NYC smellscape emerging from within them: Bubble Gum (sweet object), Coffee Moka (bitter object), Living Hemp (sour object), Pizza (salty object).
