The recognition of the Gaia hypothesis however has powerful implications for virtually every realm of scientific and philosophical endeavor, since it calls for a new way of perceiving our world. (D. Abram)
LOCALITY GRID 1.0 :
In 2015 “Ecole Mondiale” was invited in the A-I-R Laboratory-program of the Centre for Contemporary Art (CCA) Ujazdowski Castle in Warsaw. Within the framework of the “Fieldstation Terra (Gaiagraphy)” we created a locality grid. This “locality-grid 1.0” consists of 150 quartz-cristals laid out and burried in the form of a square of 25.484 m in the centre of Warsaw. As startingpoint a study of powerspots or strong energy fields in Warsaw, the idea of “going into the earth” and the traumatic events in Warsovian history which reminiscence we could clearly feel; made us merge several elements and symbolic aspects together.
The starting point of the locality-grid (the square) is the back of the head of the Bronze Copernicus statue standing in front of the Staszic Palace. It becomes the 6th chakra energy externalization of the father of modern astronomy.
The locality grid 1.0 runs also through the Gallery of the “CCA” where a 3 day performance “Visualizing the LG 1.0″ was held and the neon “Dusza Planety” was shown (made in collaboration with Polish designers’ duo NOVIKI)
