Matteo Cibic x Rooshad Shroff
The installation explores new ways of meditation for the people of the future. In the past thousand years, humans spent most of their time engaging in physical activities. In the future it will prominently be a sedentary lifestyle, engaging the mind in multi-tasking, creating a state of stress and lower body oxygenation.
The trans-meditation room is a place to dig into a repetitive activity to train attention and awareness, and achieve a mentally clear, emotionally calm and stable state, by jumping, looking at interactive colour-mix and touching the rugs.
