Looking outward into the world from the perspective of the womb: exploring technology, the body, spirituality, and the energy of life, experiencing how the sympathetic nervous system tears through the boundaries of matter in a ritualistic scenario.

The intersection of ancient spiritual practices and future rituals is explored in a non-linear expression through ambient electronic music, generative digital moving images, and 3D printing technology, connected by interactive programming. Cyborg's body carries a mix of identities. Human, machine, and beast combined: summoning otherworldly energy to surrender spirits. Post-Anthropocene debris creates Stone Age electronic lullabies and non-dualistic technological allegories.
