Experiencing Interruptions?


Shuniata is an animation that presents a parallel between the planes of existence / belief that we inhabit or wish to inhabit.
Shuniata, is a Buddhist concept that translates emptiness, and depending on the philosophical doctrine, it can be understood, either as a meditative state or a way in which the human being relates to what he understands as reality, in this order of ideas, Shuniata, it plays with the "VERDAD-ES"*, and the way in which we relate to our internal environments to find ourselves, generating beliefs that separate our real world from a fantastic world, in which we offer all our poetic thought. In some cases this plane is found through meditation, finding a world governed by non-earthly laws, which allow the liberation of the mind, in others, the catharsis is done in digital immersion, connecting us with symbolic bodies to abstract environments, in which we express and interact from our most significant interests, that is, when connecting to a video game, for example, we assume a new reality and a role in it, in videos, chats or forums we can explore spaces that are not necessarily part of our objective reality. Shuniata in this case, works as an immersion that exposes the "VERDAD-ES" is that I will travel after a moment of boredom and disconnection with reality. To do this, I make a connection between the third eye of the astral plane with a digital cable, allowing me to be part of a new reality, in a plane that is juxtaposed between virtuality, the divine planes and that dream plane that manifests before us when we dream .

*Verdad-es: is a pun, verdades is the plural of truth "es" that is equivalent to: to be. It is a question about what is the truth, in other words, what we define as truth/reality
