SPARSHE is a work by artist Caterina De Re combining video and performance art. The piece was performed during the May 2005 MFA Exhibition at RPI. I collaborated with her to create the video effects.
This is Caterina's statement about the piece:
"This 'sensation-meditation video' explores the arising of consciousness. Weaving in and out of the video fabric is the meditating female body and also fMRI brain scans taken during meditation.
Sparshe represents consciousness as the faculty of touch. In Tibetan iconography this is symbolized by flowing cloth. The soundtrack is composed entirely from processesed field recordings from sacred sites of India and vocals."
