Distiller of the Self
Natalia Rivera Medina / Colombia
Distiller of the Self is an interactive installation made out of glass, which reads the pulse of a person through a mobile app and turns it into bits, waves, and particles to tell a short story about the science and the soul. The artwork, based on neuroscientific studies, represents the transition to a truly scientific thought, questions the relation between beliefs, discrimination and conflict, and proposes how to confront our human existence with its unavoidable lack of certainties.
Created at the Berlin University of the Arts in 2016.
