ART THERAPY VIDEO
During a course Fine Art and Art Therapy, I created this project focussing spoken and written affirmations of several people. For this project I had the honor of talking -heart to heart- with beautiful souls about heir use with affirmations and how it affected/affects their wellbeing. This meditative installation expresses the power of the human voice, not only spoken but as an internal conversation with the self, allowing positive energy to create positive thoughts.
How can fear be visualized as a character of the mind in an abandoned room? This book is made with photographs and found book passages from 'L'enfant dans le Placard' of Othilie Bailly.
Experimentation with organic hand-made liquid light visuals accentuating the unpredictability of what will bind, repel and emerge. The scientific approach of this technique is visually added to the looping sense of the music.
Migration of Intelligence
This book visualizes the global migration of highly skilled people, called the brain drain phenomenon. The data includes various amounts of highly skilled migrants moving from their brain drain country to a brain gain country part of the OECD. I investigated the movement of information in our brain and translated the visual aspect of the neuron and the brain into the structured amount of data.
This installation offers a visual dialogue between the measurable speed in our brain and our states of mind. I investigated visual representations of this invisible movement through experimentation with illustration, photography, sound and video. The process results in a communicative, informative, and experiencing coherence between the scientific, visual, and auditory aspects of our brain waves.
