This is a multi-layered exploration of the soul and the universe, of oneness and divinity. It includes a magical space of exploration, nature exhibitions, AV installations and live cinema rituals.
It is based on DREAMS, a vast collection of experimental, psychedelic films.
How can we, as a more and more conscious and connected humanity rediscover the healing of oneness, the spirits and trance states? Is it possible to create a digital representation of these basic human experiences, of meditation, trance and emotions? How can we source from and combine modern technology with the ancient wisdom and knowledge, that has existed all throughout human history, while bringing together various kinds of art in one place?
Dreams digitally reinterprets ancient dances and rituals, visualises human emotions into abstract audiovisual kaleidoscopes and explores the depths of vibrations, mediations and the soul. It was recorded on four continents over the past five years and includes sufi rituals from morocco, funerals from Iran, ancient songs from Vanuatu and modern japanese dance performances in the Swiss alps.
