[Nettime-ro] Lucid Dreaming and Simbolist Art Show

Lucid Dreaming inseamna sa stii ca visezi in timp ce visezi.  Pe siteul lui Steve LaBerge, unul dintre cei mai importanti cercetatori contemporani din domeniul viselor si a somnului lucid, puteti afla informatii despre Nova Dreamer, un device de inducere si control al somnului lucid. Nova consta intr-o pereche de ochelari  plushati care au in interior un sistem computerizat miniaturizat. Acest sistem are sensori care devin activi in timpul REM (rapid eye movement) caracteristic somnului profund in care au loc visele si transmit semnale care prin automatism si exercitii pot induce visul lucid.  Steve LaBerge  este cercetator la Stanford University iar siteul despre lucid dreaming este http://www.lucidity.com/ .  Cei interesati sa participe la prima expozitie internationala pe tema viselor gasesc informatii pe siteul  http://www.dracoblu.com/symbolistshow.html
The First Annual International Juried
Online Symbolist Art Show
August 28, 2002 "The Dreamer and the Dreamed"
The first annual International Juried Online Symbolist Art Show invites artists and art students from around the world to participate in this event and celebrate symbolist art. The purpose of this first-of-a-kind event is threefold:
- To promote symbolist art and its importance of leading the viewer's imagination into the unseen world of thoughts, hopes, and fears. Symbols in art are a catalyst to personal revelation.
- To provide artists from all backgrounds a convenient and meaningful online presence. Finalists and winners will be showcased through to May 1, 2003, the date of the next show.
- To help art students gain exposure and bring together a diverse array of inspirational perspectives.
According to the Oxford Dictionary, symbolist art seeks special symbols to express the essence of things by suggestion. It engages the viewer by appealing to the heart, personality and unconscious mind, as well as the intellect.
How is it dreams can heal us, frighten us, spark creative inspiration or carry us to other realms? "The Dreamer and the Dreamed" encourages artists to explore how dreams influence their lives.
The show is curated by Canadian artist and writer, Susanne Iles. To enter the show, simply complete the entry form below.
