Experience yourself as Homomicrobis – a symbiosis of human and microbe – as you embark on a guided journey into the multispecies dimension of your body, from the comfort of your home.
More than half of the cells in your body are microbial, and nearly a tenth of the genes originate from viruses. To these trillions of bacteria, archaea, fungi, viruses and more, your body is their universe. Encounter this intimate family of odd kin and kindred strangers, and dissolve into the multitude of slippery membranes, signalling networks and molecular exchange.
‘Sonic Cellumonials’ is a communal audio-visual experience of ambient synthscapes and animations, with an optional home postal ‘cellular ceremony’ kit*, inviting you to explore the healing and transformative potential of travelling through the multidimensional ecosystems of your body.
*The optional postal kit can be sent to the viewers home and includes a small, soft meditation mask, and ceremonial instruction sheet, to use prior to and during the experience.
‘Sonic Cellumonials’ will premiere at the end of the Inter:Active Symposium on April 23 and will be followed by a Q&A moderated by Jonathan May, Curator & Creative Producer, British Council Arts.
April 23, 7.30 p.m CET / Premiere followed by a Q&A / 40 min
