by the Earth we revolve at the speed of 30 km/sec around the Sun, which then
rushes around the centre of Milky Way with the speed of 230 km/sec. Milky Way
falls towards Andromeda at the speed of 90 km/sec. and 45 km/sec. towards our
Local Group of Galaxies. At the speed of 600 km/sec. this group moves in the
direction of the Great Attractor… Our daily trips and peregrinations are part
of this voyage.
train is often a double journey towards an external point of destination
and to the inside of one's self. It is often time of relaxation,
absorption into one's own thoughts, a dreamy contemplation. Our brain
enters the state of Alpha rhythm in which the activity of neurons is more
synchronized, increasing our ability to learn as well as strengthening our
creative invention and imagination.
The sonic part of
the realization combines “the outer” sounds of a train trip and
“inner” ones of an alpha brainwave.
The discovery of brainwaves by Hans Berger in 1929
revealed that the brain while working generates electric impulses which
differ in frequency and amplitude according to the state of the brain at
the very moment. There are four basic electric rhythms: Alpha, Beta, Theta
and Delta. We can introduce the alpha state simply
by closing our eyes and setting our mind in rest. We can also use
sound to synchronize the work of the brain’s hemispheres.
The presentation in XX1 Gallery consisted of 2 video projections, speakers as well as headphones with a single alpha brainwave selected from the soundtrack
