• INVESTIGATING THE PHYSICS OF THOUGHTS

    AN ARTISTIC RESEARCH JOURNEY

  • Because our minds matter...

    We think thoughts every day, but what is our relation to our thoughts? Are they our friends? Our allies? Or do they overwhelm and control us? Do we ever actually look at our thoughts? Study their structures? Their colors or their flavors?
     
    Thoughts are the materials we use to build the stories of our lives. To build our realities. Strangely enough, we don't even think about them all that much. Yet, we can become overwhelmed by our thoughts. We hurt others with our thoughts. We hurt ourselves with our thoughts. It's sometimes like having a superpower but without the proper guidance on how to use it. We need a better relationship with our thoughts.
     
    I've been studying thoughts for 20+ years. Gaining a different understanding of our thoughts can help us recognize which thoughts bring us closer to our purpose and which ones lead us astray. My dream is to help contribute to a 'lexicon of thoughts' or a 'taxonomy of thoughts'. I love giving expression to thoughts in my artwork. But even more so, I love getting acquainted with other thoughts and helping you give expression to yours.

    WE THINK THOUGHTS EVERY DAY

    BUT WHAT DO THOUGHTS LOOK LIKE?

    If we could take one of our thoughts and place it in time and space, what would it look like? What material would it have, what color, what shape? How would it behave?

  • What people are saying

    Thanks very much for this morning. It is still resonating with me, all the thoughts about how my own thoughts are constructed feels like a beautiful gift. Fueled with your prompts, provocations, moments of synthesis and sharing what resonates with you. Very Rich!. You have invented something that gives value to those who want to think about their thoughts, in an extraordinary way."

    HOW TO INVESTIGATE THOUGHTS?

    1

    OBSERVE

    We activate and observe thoughts in any manner that feels befitting. Sometimes we focus on a word. Other times an idea. Together we try to sense what they look like. The colour. Material. Shape. Influence. Behaviour...

    PLAY

    We play with thoughts. Using any creative method. Using image language to express in shape and colour. But also meditation to go on a mind-journey. Catching the tailwind of a thought as it is let go...

    REFLECT

    Thoughts can feel like friends. Spending time with them is fun. Think about what our thoughts reveal. What they teach us. We try to think of a positive and a negative takeaway that improves the life of our thoughts...
