Based on the tenets of concentration, mindfulness, and visualization, okay.odd. is a multimedia meditation session that guides you through a stream of consciousness. It traverses the space between thought and perception; knowing and unknowing; real and imagined; proximal and tangential.
In converging our thinking minds, our unconscious ideas, and our implicitly held beliefs, you are encouraged to breathe. Don’t think. Part spiritual retreat and part commentary on our image-inundated affect-obsessed society, okay.odd. is an invitation to encounter the version of you that you feel, but do not know.
