The artist offers participants a physical experience that will immerse them in a denser present. In a complex and rapidly changing world of multiple truths and post-truths we often need a pause—a refuge that would allow us to explore ourselves on a new level—a level different from our everyday but addressing the workings of memory. The artist, the music, and the space will act as mediators within the participants’ memory, guiding them along their own process of becoming in the context of the discussion of a digitalized world and encouraging them to try and understand how our brains and bodies register information. Participants will discuss the ways in which Internet reality becoming a daily routine has changed our psychophysical perception and whether we can become stalkers of our own consciousness.


Exploring the real world by the way of virtual worlds, we study neural networks, artificial intelligence, animals and the non-human. But what is happening to us in the meantime? Technological changes affect biological transformations. Our brain constantly regenerates, which means it constantly recreates and re-works our memories. In that sense, we have no “authentic” memory. But we can return to reality through perception and adaptation. We can practice the present—not through resistance, but through observation, distancing ourselves and assuming a neutral position. How do we open up the gap between spiritual practices, occult materialism, and the virtual world?
