Exhibited RCA(Royal College of Art) MA Final Show @ West Work, London
Each of experiential researches (4.0) are self-experiment series that focus on sensory isolation in order to explore atypical, eccentric but rather introspective methods that enable me to establish a diverse spectrum within my own comfort zone to get away from a state of the overwhelming world.
(As people become more and more concerned with the psychological ramification of (an) overwhelming digital world, we may finally be ready to explore /the real benefits of taking-a-vacation from the senses.) —Meehan Crist, Postcards from the edge of consciousness
I am a solitary being who can easily be pushed into sensory overload. As such, Me-Time (4.0) aims to align my mind and body back into balance by
reducing sensory stimuli. This is a series of self-experiments using eccentric methods of REST (Restricted Environmental Stimulation Therapy) to explore my conditions of hyperthyroidism (a hormone/stress-related disease), hypersensitivity and meticulousness. Being isolated while experiencing contemplation and self-reflection, remaining aware of the external world, is for my a form of mindfulness.
