Consciousness as Interface:
or, to put into the earth the front part of the head, from the forehead to the chin
Beginning from the idea that conscious experience is an interface, “a control device”, this exploratory workshop seeks to construct simple techniques and machines which may potentially be used to visualise such an interface. These will include flickering, stroboscopic circuits; copper and zinc plate batteries with electrodes to be attached to the eyelid; static amber discharge machines; and noise generators.
The workshop will finish with an open public performance/demonstration in which the participants will perform and show their work to the public.
Subject areas covered in the workshop include:
1). Your finger is a finger, your eye is a mouse
or, your eye is an eye and your finger is a mouse.
2). [C,H,O]-[Fe++Fe+++2O4]-[Zn]-[Cu] + Acid + Eye
or, sending an electric current into your eye.
3). Opening flicker portals in optic nerve fibres
or, staring directly into a high powered stroboscopic light firing at around 15-25 flashes per second.
4). Noise generators
or, noise generators.
5). Engaging the Holoflux
or, upon reaching a heightened state of awareness of conscious experience flowing around you, allow yourself to fall into the wormhole.
