So for me, my understanding would be that my material is stories. Because that’s the raw material. Or maybe it’s a feeling, I don’t know, it could be. Or like a- [explanatory noise] a sense of urgency. Or a sense of radical transformation, you know, that- like an inner storm, but beautiful storm, you know. Okay, I don’t know, so that-. Okay now I’m moving too much. And-. Otherwise, I can also speak in terms of: “Yes, my medium is like a video installation or performance” [mocking voice], you know, that’s also a thing. But that’s not really interesting to me, you know, because that you can see. And when you see my work, you can say it yourself, you don’t need me, to say this right.
So, an information needs to be encoded in a format in order to be shared, you know, in order to travel. So, if the information- my material is stories, then the encoding can have different realms of existence. One is first maybe the research process, the encounters from which I gather the stories, that’s the main part of- it’s my favorite part actually of work [laughs] – then you have maybe the manifestation of it in different like forms or one would be film, I work often with film, and video like [explanatory noise] creating from older stories like something else, you know. So then it becomes a- an interface, that’s the word, the different interfaces for those stories. So, one would be film than one would be more energetic, because I hold healing circles in my practice and so that’s a different interface for me to share those stories and to connect with people on a- on a different way. You know, I feel like a lot of my video work are very like- maybe more like head based, because there’s a lot of information, they’re very dense, so you connect from here. And maybe my healing circle it’s more like- it allows a space in order to connect like heart to heart, so it’s a different knowledge center, that’s activated through the body. So, it- yeah, it’s more speaking to soul, you know, rather than trying to share a message maybe. You know, in my video work, there’s things I wanna say, whereas in my healings I [? ]what is there, what needs to be processed right here, right now? There’re all different, different in depending on where we are, who is there, like what’s happening energetically in the space. So, it’s a very different process but still an interface for the stories to be shared. And then sometimes these stories also demands another realm of existence, which is a space like almost an institution, well like- this word is a bit complicated- but like outer place, space, home, environment to hold this teaching and these stories in a more like- maybe across space time, you know? So, for the work that I’m working on now, I’m hoping to build an observatory. You know, I started an astro-club in Cayenne, you know, to- we’re like getting the telescope out, you know, watching the moon, telling stories about like the universe, so this all. Or the project, you know, like maybe when we’re talking about the internet earlier with friends of mine in South Africa, we created our own server to build like a space on the deep web to have an autonomy and security. So that’s more like- it’s a different approach, you know. So sometimes the stories demand that.
I also work in cycles, so I guess for the last five years I really worked around information and communication technology, whether through like electronic technologies, organic technologies, spiritual technologies, so how can we connect through and from those. And now I’ve started another cycle, looking at the relationship with the sky as I said. But I’m already forcing the next cycle which is earth space, because now I live in the forest in the Amazon and I’m actually looking for some land to build a space, a home, a school, I don’t know, a place of study for the enfoldment of the soul. We’ll have an observatory, medicinal garden like lots of- farming and like sound work, bodywork, so it’s art of science of the body of the earth, of the sky and of sound.
