Through the performance event, Untitled Consciousness Project, Patricia Faolli, Magali Wilensky and Jason Schuler are exploring ways for audiences to awaken inner resources through a series of participatory activities that share elements common to altered states of consciousness. We have been researching how one can provide new perspective on their lives through these kinds of experiences. The piece is a kind of exploratorium that combines a central, meditative performance around which are a number of one-on-one, interactive stations. Each station helps to shift participants’ perceptions of themselves, space-time, and reality.

This video was projected as part of a performance art piece titled, "Maraschino Autopsy Report" which was presented in Red Hook Brooklyn about incidents related to a local cherry factory and how the events are a harbinger for a changing landscape in the neighborhood. The performance included the baking of cherry pies for guests, each with a letter baked into it. The letters were combined by participants on an overhead projector to spell out a secret message. The cherries for the pies were exhumed from the earth surrounding the factory and replaced by buried artifacts from a local resident. The video was projected from a pico projector in order to give the impression of a flashlight shining an x-ray beam into the factory to reveal its secrets.
