Aisthesis in the Shaman's Diagram: The Yage painting

The Yage painting located behind the installation above the day bed represents the Ayahuasca experience. In a larger scale, the painting depicts the “other” perceptions. Perpetually, the Shaman flips the painting around to emphasize that the body laying in the center is conjectural and dynamic, and not at all a body in stasis. There is a poem placed on the right side of the painting which links the day bed, and the gown laying on the bed to the notion of “wearable” perception.
