Chrome Cavern and the Expanded Consciousness Reading Room

Chrome Cavern and the Expanded Consciousness Reading Room
 

A collaboration with David Baker Architects in conjunction with Architecture and the City Festival 2015. A faux Large Hadron Collider Particle Accelerator was constructed as a conduit for human self reflection and exploration, sending participants on a journey of internal voyeurism and insight(via mirrored surfaces and esoteric reading material). The space provided a visually and intellectually transformative laboratory where visitors dove headlong into deep internal self reflection, only to return to a world where all the imaginary differences between themselves and others had dissolved. A terrestrial attempt at The Overview Effect.

Workshops and various programming within the installation covered topics ranging from mortality to transhumanism, artificial intelligence to consciousness and dark matter to the infinite void. (Sept 2nd - October 2nd 2015)
