Becoming One and Many Through Your Soul

Installation, seed, soil, stone, bark, paper mache, plaster, cotton, iron, recycled wooden panel, acrylic on linen, variable size, 2021

“Becoming One and Many Through Your Soul” is a participatory installation that shows and enables people to meditate through an interconnected environment that reflects on the relation between humans and other species' conditions in this unbalanced ecological period. The collective practice invites people to step into the environment in order to activate an empathetic imagination through meditation. After the meditative experience, participants are welcome to take the seeds around the soil structure to plant outside. Through this action, you’re taking care of and contributing to possible regeneration of our environment.

*Texts around installation

Let yourself imagine the conditions of other species, while meditating on this environment. 

We are breathing and sharing millions of years of breath and time with dead and living animals. 

A history of breath is being generated every second through our mind and action. 

In this unbalanced ecological period, how can we learn sympathetic and responsible imagination together?
