Maureen Seaberg – Revolution of the Senses
Maureen Seaberg will help us understand what it’s like to live with synesthesia. She will also discuss the latest research on the subject.
Maureen Seaberg is an author, writer and expert blogger. She has written for the New York Times, National Geographic, ESPN the Magazine, Vogue, Glamour, the Daily Beast and many other venues. Her nature photos and videography have also been featured in National Geographic.
Maureen has several forms of synesthesia, including the profound empathy of mirror touch and exquisite sensitivity of ASMR, and in 2013 tested positive for the genetic basis for tetrachromacy, or the presence of a fourth cone class for color perception in her eyes. The BBC said she have superhuman vision, and Vogue called her the “Girl With Kaleidoscope Eyes.” She has begun tetrachromacy functionality testing with Arizona State University to confirm the behaviors and experiences of the phenotype and early results are extremely positive.
Her abilities lead to a collaboration with MAC Cosmetics as the inspiration for and color consultant on a line of super-pigmented lipstick called Liptensity.
Maureen has appeared in the New Yorker, New York Magazine, NPR, Allure, French Vogue, Teen Vogue, Glamour, Elle, Cosmopolitan, NYLON, Refinery29, Women’s Wear Daily, TEDWeekends and many other publications.
