Flora Ballet

The idea of the artwork is based on reversed usage of the plants by the humanity when the plants are taking control over the human flesh altering the central nervous system and brain. Electric muscle stimulation makes possible to let the plants to control human body. Flora or fungi were used by he humanity for the psychedelic experiences and could let the plants to control human mind. It could give for the humanity the control over their mind with usage of plants but my project can give us control over the body without the brain influence if we will teach the plants ho tale care of our flesh and use flesh to tke care of the plant itself. The new mind is just the plant mind, new memories are the plans memories. But the body is still human body. The plant can use the humans as vehicle that can let the plant to travel, or in future, wnen we will have more knowledge about affective neuroscience can make possible to control also our mind. We will let the plants to see and experience, and we all will become the parts of the one tree that will use our minds and bodies to experience the world.

The plant and this electric device turns now into brain replacement! So for now we can ask – Do we need our brain? – we can see it like a parasite that had take control over our bodies and rewrite itself into our DNA just to replicate itself as integral part with other human body parts. Overvaluation of the brain makes question about transhumanistic idea of transmission the brain into the electronic device to split off old form of existence and possess the next one. I would love to put this question for our civilisation – do we can be ourself without the brain and its octopus like structure of cetral nervous system?
