Perceptual habits in Western Culture, from the Greeks to the 17th century, operated through a synesthetic approach to reality. Modernity separated the senses and Modern Art has operated through this logic. Contemporary digital culture, however, seems to be returning to older models of perception, in many ways synesthetic. This article attempts to define some aspects of the synesthetic experience, briefly tracing some cultural historical references, to propose a concept of digital perception -- the mode of contemporary experience fostered and supported by digital technological apparatuses.
