colorthesia-- a portmanteau of the word "color" and "synethesia". Inspired by the cross-linking of senses in synethesia, colorthesia is an easy-to-use, simple word-to-color representation site. The temperatures of the colors are adjusted according to the syllabic lengths of each word. Warmer colors represent less syllables, and cooler colors represent more syllables. The intent of this website is to demonstrate not only the technical but also the artistic potential of computer science, showing that the two fields are not disparate. The concept of the website is also open-ended, allowing modifications for possible future applications in creative education and interdisciplinary learning. Despite its simplistic layout, colorthesia makes an lasting statement about the beauty of computation.
