“IMAGINAL PATHWAYS” is a guided, interactive experience that takes the form of a self-reflective, query-filled maze. By navigating a series of prompts (through language, video, soundscape, algorithm, and other cues), each participant will explore questions that examine the personal responses and desires arising from within their journey, whether virtually, mentally or physically.
Curated by orleanlaiproject, this project is created by Shane Aspegren, co-created by Tap Chan and Mak Ying-tung 2.
The orleanlaiproject focuses on curating hybrid collaborations across genres, exploring new possibility of presentation formats and fusing the boundary of art forms and mediums.
As a musician and composer, Shane Aspegren has performed in hundreds of concerts worldwide. He is largely known for his practices related to music and sound, which often play an integral part in his installations, images, videos, objects, and performances. Interested in the relational aesthetics of every form, Aspergen often uses interactive and collaborative methods of creation, as well as the practical application of those methods, such as his ongoing work with meditative practices – specifically the effects of sound waves and its effects on the human mind and physical matter of the body.
A Guided Journey Between Realities
The thing in your hand is binary in its construction but the pathway is fluid; a stream of references rather than an answer. Like a tarot deck or any other ritual device, it is primarily used to provoke inner sensations of perceived choice, fear, longing, lust, narcissism, illusion, schadenfreude, submission, and the whole spectrum of brainwave states and animal impulses. Kindly submit to the user preferences and consider each step closely.
