Differing from Newton and Schopenhauer, your ancestor did not think of time as absolute and uniform. He believed it an infinite series of times, in a dizzily growing, ever spreading network of diverging, converging and parallel times. “The Garden of Forking Paths” by Jorge Luis Borges.

“The Extraterrestrial Botanist (2014-2017)” is a pseudo-research project in experimental botany. This iteration of the project focuses on quantum mind theories and alternative healing practices such as vibrations, subtle body, meditation, and expanded consciousness. Three intra-active video modules will be presented:

1 - NeVis, nevis, NEVIS: a wormhole (simulation), video projected on a suspended textile funnel.

2 - VI: Vegetal Intelligence: a model based on quantum mind, a brain-sized replica of a growing labyrinth, 3D printed parts, plants, various electronics, hand-blown glass, custom plinth.

3 - Songs for Chimera: an irregular polyhedron harp/instrument experimentation in tuning for intergalactic/dimensional communication.
