meetings with remarkable people - video installation
The project deals with the intersection of neuro-science (neuroplasticity and mirror neurons), spirituality (mindfulness / Zen Buddhism), social-based research (3 sectors of society from the area of the residency) and artistic practice in the form of video-dance installation.
Inspired by G.I.Gurdjieff 'Meetings with Remarkable men', the project is a journey into the quality of the present and the synergy created between the observer, participant and spectator to explore that stream of consciousness.
On her path, the artist (Dorit) with her suitcase meets people living in the residency area, namely forced immigrants and refugees, scholoars from neuroscience and anthropology, children and the elderly. The artistic encounters lead to a multi-screen video installation
