Till en älskad vän: materia och objekt som medier för överföring
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis [Artistic work]
With self-hypnosis as a method, I work with levels of consciousness in relation to practice. Focus lies in the relation between a language of materials and an inner experience. How do material expressions function as mediums of a spiritual matter between a beholder and me? The trance functions as a space for a spiritual contact/communication. Abstract images of crystalline glaze on ceramic tiles are direct results of these acts. The work also includes sculptural furniture of Salix, so called “energy forest” and a film-‐documentation of Ma Stjärnliden, a medium. The energy chairs holds both function and symbolic implications to the integrality, the film widens the theme by stretching towards the occult as well as the mediumistic communication represents an extreme variant of consciousness. The three works experienced together, in addition to shape, form and function offers an entrance into a spiritual space.
This written material describes, background, methods, process, materials, aesthetics and embedded symbolic references as well as it presents an analysis of a contemporary context to widen the spiritual as a theme.
