Theta is the name of a particular range of brain waves characterized
by high-amplitude but slow-cycles.
Theta waves are associated with dreaming, creativity, deep meditation,
emotional surges, and spiritual experiences. Using your imagination in theta
removes the judgments and constraints of the logical mind,
and allows for visions and the opening of new mental dimensions.
I’ve always been particularly interested in the wide range of experiences
that the mind allows us to live; dreams, imagination,
and even alterations due to drugs or diseases.
I think that the use of Polaroids, particularly the expired ones, is a great way to create a visual transposition of the process we live in our mind during a cycle of theta waves.
The pictures of this series, taken with the sx-70 and the one step +,
are part of my visual journey in this attempt to investigate my inner world.
