Major Premise: The power of art as a tool for spirituality and the development of human consciousness.
Process: Meditational practice involving visual art.
Mantra: “Think less; Feel more.”
How does one find peace in our digitally dependent hyper-reactive culture, through the very means of its creation. But a bit more mindfully.
Means of resilience through the digital arts and the process of art making; creating and activating a sacred space of mindfulness
Looking at an art image you can recognize the meditative power of art, and its ability to infuse awareness. To stand in front of a work of art requires the ability to be still and engage in the act of seeing—taking in color, line, movement, the obvious details and the subtler undertones the way you might take in the breath, sensations in the body, and energy of your thoughts during a seated meditation.
These evocative images were chosen for their revelatory, revitalizing, and contemplative capacities. And ar grounded in the principles of sacred geometry,, Prana, Meditation, the operative aspects of the spiritual path, the five elements, traditional sacred texts, body and breath, guru and guidance, lifestyle, god or the divine.
The images are Duratran Backlit film prints that are displayed in a labyrinthine of hanging lightboxes over a sculptural center, a 4’ x 6’ copper pyramid.
We live in an age of technological advance, with all its glory, conveniences, and consequences. Through digital communication we are endlessly distracted.
Such intrusive digital distractions can lead to "a dispersed consciousness" and a fragmented rather than a cohesive worldview. "Digital communication is atomization",
information is broken up into a codex of zeros and ones. Life as well gets broken down and processed in bits and bytes. We begin to lose sight of how things are connected; parts to wholes, and their integration. We begin to experience the world as fragments.
This "sacred" space would allow for a reconnection of all our disparate parts. Getting us offline, from living disembodied and back in sync with self.
Reminding us that we live in the presence of the GOD of our hearts. We live intentionally, in light and love, and out of a calm center.
"Simplify, simplify" -
