About Ellen Hackl Fagan
Ellen Hackl Fagan is an abstract painter who builds connections between color and sound using installations, an interactive web app, and collaborative projects that combine color-saturated paintings with sound.
The Reverse Color Organ (RCO) is an interactive web app that enables users to build a language that pairs colors with sounds, using their droid, or smartphones as a synaesthetic tool. Unlike earlier color organs, the Reverse Color Organ presents this blended synaesthetic language from a painter’s perspective; that colors’ communicative properties include aural equivalents. The RCO has gone through five major phases working in collaboration with programmers, scientists and composers throughout this thirteen-year development.
