Portal- Immersive Art Experience is a concept that makes you connect with your self using the 5 elements of nature: AIR, EARTH, FIRE, WATER and MAGNETISM.
The goal is to make people connect with their emotions, understand their feelings and share their love with others. We all have feelings no matter of the nationality or culture, we all need to share our joy and life with others.
Emotions are a very important element in our life. Love and emotions are our guide in taking decisions.
Portal is a concept with different experiences, each of them is different:
Portal Immersive Art Experience is a series of creative art exhibitions.
Portal Immersive Art Experience is using different instruments : paintings, natural art installations, music design, video, plasmatic science and other to make you connect with your true nature and express your creativity.
Portal is a gate and a tool to make people understand what are the elements from nature that brings balance in your life.
How everything started:
The artist dreamed about this concept for one year, she had a revelation when she practice art history, meditation and channeling with art at Alex & Alison Grey in New York about the connection of alchemy.
She remember the skills that her father teached her as a boat architect and musician and her mother as an alchemist, a chimist working in a lab for 35 years that knows about the healing powers of plants and stones, where to find crystals in the forest and their properties.
She put together all the knowledge and also other skilled people to create Portal.
Art therapy is a portal to express your feelings freely on a canvas by using colours.
Portal Teambuilding is a creative tool to connect a team.
The components of the concept are the following ones:
Paintings that shows spirals of different colors. Each painting represent an element (in the sens of Empedocle’s elements).
Five elements are used also : air, earth, water, fire, magnetism.
The four elements of Empedocle are shown physicaly by using at least one of the five sens.
The fifth element is choosen to be magnetism, demonstrated by using magnet and iron fillings. Other physical system could be used as long as they show very directly the properties of magnetism.
Some questions, writing on a animated support.
A canvas that can be used by participants.
Sources of music.
The connection beetween components:
The four elements of Empedocle can be symbolized by 4 kinds of triangles. Each different ones take place at the feet of the element itself and at the feet of the paintings that are supposed to represent this element.
A writting on a support is at the entrance, explaining the purpose of the concept and the theory around the different elements.
An animated writting on a other support (paper, tv, …) make them connect the exhibition with their own life experience.
The possibility for participants to paint on a canva dedicated to that, will make them synthetized all their feelings during the exhibition and reflexions through this expression. It s the final connection beetween everything.
