Koklea is a video and music project that focuses on consciousness and the brain. Koklea asks existential questions about the mind: what happens when the brain brakes? what happens with our minds when we die? what makes my mind distinct from yours? What is the mind anyway?

The pieces consist of music, sounds, graphics and a collage of texts that capture our main subject. The texts can be contemporary or ancient, religious as well as scientific, from books, films or TV-series.

A list of texts used so far:

* Jill Bolte Taylor, My Stroke of Insight: A Brain Scientist’s Personal Journey (2008)
* Douglas Hofstadter, I am a Strange Loop (2007)
* Bardo Thödol (Tibetan Book of the Dead)
* Christian Bök, Crystallography (1994)
* 2001 A Space oddysey (1968)
* Ghost in the Shell (1995)
