observer and those signals will be used as an input to generate a visual experience.The installation will include a computer-based system that incorporates bio signalsensors, a digital to analogue converter, and a projection system, controlled by analgorithm.I will divide the project in two main aims:
Aim 1: production phase
My first aim is to rely on the power of intuition as guidance to create a seriesof 15 to 18 short video scenes and each scene will have duration of 60-120seconds. In order to direct each scene I plan to rely on my intuition, and I will trainmy self to do so through the use of Ayahuasca. Ayahuasca is a medicinal andtraditional infusion of the Amazon Rainforest. It is prepared from the
vine, and is used by shamans from the Amazon Rainforest during healing ceremonies as a way to develop intuition and connect with thespiritual. I will work with experienced shamans who will conduct ayahuascaceremonies as a way to train myself to open up and trust my intuition. The content of the scenes is going to be influenced by the visions, messages and understandingsI have during the ayahuasca ceremonies as well as the knowledge and experiencesI recollect from the people I interview and the books I read regarding this sacredbrew.
Objectives during production phase
Step 1: Learn about Ayahuasca by participating in shaman-conducted ceremonies,doing interviews, reading and researching about the brew.
