And also found an relevant  video.

The chemical structure of hallucinogens and the structure of some substance in our body have close contact,such as DMT,also belong to a substance in out body. The latter is the central nervous system,such as LSD can change one’s character,world view and behavior. It have power to shape our destiny,but its productivity or damage cannot be controlled by our will. Substances such as adrenaline,formation or release through the thoughts and emotions. So as to determine the relevant part of the nervous system function. So we can imagine,our physical body is easily affected and shaped by our consciousness,our intellectual nature is shaped by our biochemistry mechanism. Hallucinogens just like a door of the consciousness,blurs the boundaries between consciousness and the physical world. More like consciousness is the foundation of universe,material is result of consciousness.

Now people immersed in the material world,ignoring the spirit of their own. These material leads to more and more people are lonely and empty. In the future,maybe they need these medicines to fill their spiritual emptiness.

Sorry about post 2 days post. These two day I had do some research,collected illusion experience and do some material test.

First I have tried 4 materials to test which one can project more than one layer.

1.kinds of paper which is translucence

IMG_9840

 

First layer:

IMG_9823

 

Second layer can not saw anything

 

IMG_9820

2.kinds of paper more soft and more translucence

IMG_9842

 

IMG_9808

Second layer is not clear if project a pattern not a simple line.

IMG_9809 IMG_9813

3.White cotton

IMG_9841

Second layer can saw the pattern but very blur,the effect is ok.

IMG_9818

4.Silk,because I found all materials I bought are not suitable so I used my scarf to test. Please ignore the pattern on the silk.

IMG_9843

 

First layer is very clear

 

IMG_9741

 

Second layer is ok,I can saw the pattern detail clearly.

 

IMG_9838

 

Then I tried to widen the distance between two layer to 30cm.

 

 

IMG_9803

 

Still can saw the pattern detail,but weaker.

 

IMG_9745

Then I add to 4 layer,the pattern can through 4 layer. But the fourth layer can not saw the pattern clearly. Only have blur outline.IMG_9795 IMG_9799  IMG_9804

I also tried to use dark color silk,the projective effect is not as good as white one.

IMG_9825

But the effect which project on the wall is interesting.

After these test,it shows that I need to find a material similar as silk and white. Moreover,I think three layers is the limitation to see the pattern clear.

And some collections of LSD user’s experience.

IMG_9733

And some notes of reading.

IMG_9734

This are some people’s explanation of illusion.  J.E.D.Esguirol said it is a perception without an object. I think in some extent,interactive experience is kinds of illusion. Because like in immersive experience,audience feel they are in some where,but actually they sill in a gallery or exhibition.

IMG_9844 IMG_9845

These are some notes about the illusion and reality.

Some new idea of how to place layers in the space:

Today Shiye,Yutong and Silvia and me met at school for discussed about our idea,and gave advise to each other. Like tutorial,I explain my final idea to them and show them how I develop my idea,what have I done recently. Because my content is still blur,so I explain what I am interested in and some key words.

Silvia suggest me to write a detailed proposal which will help me to explain my idea. This is a good suggest and I will do it before next tutorial.  Then both of they think my experience collection of LSD user are interesting. At first I want to combine all of them to make a video,but they think it have too many of experience and difficult to combine them. So they suggest me to choose one experience and present it. About the content,I told them some snippet and told them I have no idea how to develop. Then they gave me some advises which are very useful. My key words are perception,spirit and hallucination which are connect with what I am interested in,like mysticism,buddhism,hallucination,meditation,and also my research paper aesthetic experience. They suggest I can focus on enlarge perception which we ignore in the daily life. Like choose one perception and block other perception. Especially some perception which we can not control. And awake people self-consciousness and self-focus. They also suggested me to combine visual and sound. These suggestion are quite inspire me.

And I also show them some works I interested in and told them my new develop idea. Like I want to make my work more abstract and make some layer in the space. They think the new one is more suitable,but I need to test first.

So I will continue to collect those experience and choose one which is the most attract me. Then also find some information about sound which will cause people have some reaction. And I will also test this new idea and write a proposal.

Some test:

 

Then I found another artwork of  NONOTAK Studio.

I like their way to present their idea. Use light to constitute a virtual space.

another work:

These remind me to think about my idea,such as the water come out and fill the space. It was too concretization and obvious,less imagination to give audience. I should thinking seriously.
