Experiences of the honeydew consciousness is an intermedia installation composed by one text, three photographs, one video, sound composition and organic elements.
In presented works I assume the role of the observer of nature in a wider laboratorium of reality. Slicing the consciousness into layers of organicity and exploring the interaction of nature with the human being.
Using different mediums I evoke, to the exhibition space, the awakeness of various senses in the audience, in order to create a dimensional felling. The presented works become active productions in themselves, constantly affecting and being affected by the interpretations of the audience.
I invited the musician Ricardo Ribeiro to collaborate with me, and compose a sound piece based on experiences of this cycle. This combination established a synesthetic dialog, where music evokes image and visuality kindles sound experiences.

- Part of video loop with Ricardo Ribeiros music, 2012
- Text 2012
“Wind, the invisible nomad, mute troubadour of a precious and mysterious song. With plant pollens, raindrops, fragrances of flowers, the nature‘s messenger announces with an appropriate distance: I am everything and nothing!
If only I could be able to distinguish myself within the full extent of the world. To hide under the protection of Nature, covering my back with tree bark like a feathery comforter. To discover myself under that protection… through my sensibility being able to assemble with the world.”
