Latent Colours of the Future Mind II

This guided meditation, led by artist Annika Kappner, invited the participants to explore the sensorial dimension related to our seemingly opposite desires for connection and control.

This guided meditation was framed and informed by research on the cosmology of the native Shipibo-Conibo experiencing an all encompassing energy through a synaesthetic cultural practice and by an investigation of fantasies of Artificial General Intelligence as an omnipotent force and its similarities with neoliberal economics fuelled by technological advances.

Wearing comfortable clothing was best to experience this guided meditation. For some participants it was the first time ever meditating. At the end of the session we exchanged on the different experience of everyone. Some saw shapes, some could see sounds, some felt their bodies some other forgot it for a while. Fuse was a very interesting location for such a moment, in the middle of a beautiful installation by Henk Schut.
