Background

A description of the experience

Thor Conway – Painted Dreams: native American Rock Art

Red and black paintings surround two small holes bored into the side of the walls by natural forces. As you stare at these entrance ways to another realm, suddenly – and without voluntary control – the pictographs break the artificial visual reality that we assume… Suddenly, the paintings encompassing the recessed pockets began to pulse, beckoning us inward. The added effects – a nightmare setting, firelight, shadows dancing on the walls, and the resonation of aboriginal chanting – could induce even more profound experiences.
