excerpt from video

The video is based on one of my drawing diaries and on my participation in the Ayahuasca ceremony in 2011. In the video I scroll through the pages of abstract drawings in the book and recite my psychedelic group experience. The narrative and the patterns in the drawings mimic human inter-dependency and explore the significance of belonging to a group versus individualism.
