The Visual Nature of Thought
The Origin (Source: Greek Mythology)
I have recorded the process by which metal-bending machines that operate in a factory that produces sheet metal,and have subverted the context by juxtaposing the visual imagery with a voice-over that quotes Greek mythology (Origin myth). The repetitions and distortions suggest glitches and interruption in thought.
Hypersensitivity Part 1
I have attempted to subvert the subject by replacing it with a location where the voice-over describes hypersensitive disorders classified under Type 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5 so as to suggest the visual nature of abstract concepts. The clinical appearance of the airport suggests a hospital and the voice-over is analogous to flight announcements. The audio-visual distortions and overlaps represent glitches, parapraxis and interruptions that we face daily. 
Hypersensitivity Part 2
Memory and Information
This video shows slide shots of web pages depicting how one could interpret information. I have tried to show how pieces of information that the brain focuses on by skimming through a web page get aligned with the permanent memory. I have  tried to show how questions generate in the  mind, and therefore whats 'random' or 'irrational' is merely guided by a paradigm that hasn't been decoded yet.
The Visual Process of Releasing an Engram Part 1
Everyone according to the theory of Dianetics is born with a memory bank and by freeing ourselves of so called inhibiting engrams, or memory traces, we could improve our rational faculty and 'become ourselves'.  Dream imagery on the other hand serves an organic purpose of the human faculty. The artificial nature of Therapy in Dianetics serves a stark contrast to the organic nature of the human being and his artificial potential that is recognized as progressive. However the relevance of dream imagery forms the other end of the spectrum and I explore both ends.

The Color of Blue
I have taken photographs of excerpts from an interview with Luc Tuymans to show the relationship between serendipity, the spontaneity of thought but ironically presented by means of text. The photographic quality of a painting signals an attempt made by the artist to free himself of his own perception that is at times 'incorrectly' rendered to him by his senses, thereby enhancing the objectivity of his communication.
Flat Horizontal Part 1
I have recorded the process by which black water color paint dries on paper in the shape of a silhouette of the human body. The areas in which the process occurs suggest parts of the human body that are affected and the black color suggests negativity, almost as if painful engrams are being embedded in the body that is flat and sideways. This is followed by a process of glue drying between a layer of OHP that features a visual of a computer screen and a canvas coated with cyanotype chemicals. On top of the entire surface, writing that says ‘contain’ and ‘continue’  in glue dries and turns transparent from its white liquid form.

When a word in the form of text or language appears to us in thought and we utter it, the symbolic Form of the word and the phonetic sound of it reveal the paradigm or Sphota. Errors in the form of parapraxis suggest environmental or genetic signals that our body and mind are trying to convey to us, in other words memory engrams that we failed to retrieve in the past stand revealed to us. The realization occurs within the human body and the source of information is external. When we forget information, in many cases we do not actually forget it but replace it with a different memory trace, because the information might be cause us pain or discomfort such that we cannot accept it despite the fact that we believe it is true. 
Memory Traces: Connections
Glitch (Repetition): Virus (Wire Us)
 
What is intriguing about a virus is that it reproduces but does not consume anything. A virus is a small infectious agent that replicates only inside the living cells of other organisms. Viruses can infect all types of life forms, from animals and plants to bacteria and archaea. The origins of viruses in the evolutionary history of life are unclear: some may have evolved from plasmids—pieces of DNA that can move between cells—while others may have evolved from bacteria. In evolution, viruses are an important means of horizontal gene transfer, which increases genetic diversity. The growth of virus cells is analogous to cells that metastasize and the source and purpose of their origin is unclear. Viruses are considered by some to be a life form, because they carry genetic material, reproduce, and evolve through natural selection.
