Part of the installation, the video explores how we fly. This is from, at first, an intellectual perspective, looking at flight literally. Even this literal flight, when examined, gives insight regarding the flight of dreamtime. What does it mean to be lighter than air? How do you ride on the flow of air? How does it feel to unite with air compared to earth? How does flight arise from within the human body?
Throughout the world there are numerous traditions that teach meditation techniques. The techniques vary superficially. Fundamental to all is focus and the breath. The breath is one of our autonomic activities, we don’t have to think for it to happen. However, unlike other land mammals, we can govern our breathing. During emotional times shifting the focus to the breath can change your reaction. Without even addressing your emotions you can still them by just addressing the breathing. This ability to change our reactions/perceptions through the breath allows us to fly above daily life.
The ambient soundtrack consists of hemisync tracks (brainwave entrainment music designed to facilitate meditation and lucid dreaming) as well as other soothing music and noises. While the visual component is 4 minutes long, the soundtrack is 12 minutes long. Only the middle portion plays during the video segment linked.
