A series of public performances inviting an audience to follow a six-stage process to remotely visualise a distant geographical site. Each performance starts by listening to a targeted site’s geographical coordinates, triggering participants’ first impressions of what that site might look like. Throughout the rest of the performance, participants are guided to develop their first impressions into a detailed mental sketch of the location. Three pseudo-gym equipment sculptural devices at the audience’s disposal, invite them to rest in front of a screen in motion showing computer generated animations, forcing a mismatch between cerebral perception and bodily sensation, in order to catalyse meditation and the ability to view space remotely. A soundscape designed to enhance the mental exercise accompanies the performance, combining binaural beats and environmental field recordings.
