This video summarizes the interactive video installation by Mariana Tschudi called "sometimes I feel like nationalizing snake" (quote by Cesar Calvo) that took place in Lima, Perú in Vertice Gallery. July 12th - 25th, 2012.
The show is composed by 13 video/animation pieces that illustrate the visions people have while drinking sacred plants, mainly ayahuasca (Banisteriopsis caapi). Inspired by the way in which visions appear during an ayahuasca ceremony, Mariana Tschudi, along with Juan Manuel Benavides, biomedical engineer, developed a technological system (using Processing and a mindset) which reads the spectator’s brainwaves and evaluates the order in which the videos should appear depending on the viewer's brain activity.
