Aisthesis in the Shaman's Diagram

The artist as the “glow maker”-in front of the Yage painting. The perceptual intention is to show how certain colors-yellows, ochre, sanguine, etc. have a glowing effect that has incorporeal qualities. But the artist is just posing, and his only “vision” is the archival of the moment. He is a trickster making fun of the type of easily achievable self-importance look, so common in artwork documentation.
