Synaesthesia: Music Into Painting of the Early Safavid Period (2017)

This zine is a rehash of the MA dissertation that I handed in at the end of my time at the Courtauld Institute of Art.

Titled Synaesthesia: Music into Painting of the Early Safavid Period, the thesis examines how the insertion of aural components into sheet painting contested, negotiated and navigated religious mandates, courtly practices and bodily experiences.

The zines were given out free for all who were interested, and copies are currently in the collection of zine libraries in Singapore and Edinburgh.

If you’d like a copy of the zine, please get in touch with me.
