Doorways to Mystery is a video installation I collaborated on with my colleague Darius Vaičekauskas in February 2019. The installation was a part of the Festival of Light that takes place every winter in Klaipėda, Lithuania. Video in the installation was inspired by a quote from an American ethnobotanist and a researcher of Amazonian shamanism, Terence Mckenna.
Gaiamycota reflects on the state of “what remains of the soil” of our planet… it’s accute predicament and foretells of a method to address this, given a global collective and cultural will.
I contributed two large format photomontages and a 15 minute video film to the project.

Gaiamycota premierred in September 2016 at the Futurecade show during the Festival of the Mind 2016 in Sheffield (UK) and had 9000 visitors. Here are a few photos from the show.
