[ALIEN] STAR DUST
Signal to Noise: Molecular Light for Russia
[ALIEN] STAR DUST: Signal to Noise has evolved from a site-specific installation into a global, collaborative and participatory virtual guided meditation bringing participants into a space of healing and transcendence through visuals and vibrations. Due to times of crisis and quarantine it became evident that the connection is more vital than ever and stardust became the medium and the metaphor for contemplation and connectivity.
This meditation is created by the artist specifically for CYFEST-13 and will focus on the Chelyabinsk meteor that fell in 2013. Audiences are guided to follow the breakup of the meteor and stay centered as all falls apart, and the star dust is mixed up with various anthropogenic dust. Before the meditation, there will be a talk about the project followed by Q&A after the collective gathering of minds.
