I went to see Zee by Kurt Hentschläger, one of the most incredible experiences I ever have.
You enter in a non-space, non-dimension place where all the perception it is suspended.

I wonder of what Bachelard could have says inside that room.

What people from future perfect says:

“ZEE is a rigorous mindscape; a hallucinatory architecture of light; a dream machine.
An enclosed space is filled with a dense, odorless fog that completely obscures the walls, floor and ceiling. Individuals freely roam this environment, while flickering light filters through the haze, inducing hallucinations and sensory distortions within each viewer. A droning soundscape intensifies this full-immersion experience, shifting dynamically according to changes in the color, frequency and intensity of the light.
Exhilarating and meditative, Kurt Hentschläger’s pulsing, stroboscopic and mind-altering ZEE pushes the boundaries of human perception and creates an intense audiovisual journey. A constant innovator and one of the most influential figures in the field of contemporary art and technology, Hentschläger merges conceptual art, sound, video, performance, and technology in his large-scale installations”.

In my own words, when you go inside, what you experience is unique from those who are sharing the room with you. There is at the beginning fear and loneliness… and after a while: that thing becomes your universe… For me it was like a kind of acid trip full of color and geometrical patterns that generate curves, impossible arquitectures and sometimes even people… weird figures here and there.
