About

Invisibledrum is a platform for artists and researchers that focuses on contemporary views of animistic practices within transdisciplinary fields of knowledge such as art, technology, psychology, cognitive science, spiritual studies, speculative design, archaeology and anthropology amongst others. Invisibledrum aims for opening pathworks where knowledge production within contemporary art is manifested aside of traditional postcolonial school of thought, where an understanding of knowledge production is mainly based on the influence of orthodox rationalist thinking. Invisibledrum supports and creates dialogues based on fieldwork methods where body, technology, (in)visible architecture, site, and landscape are interrelationated and in constant becoming interactivity.

Invisibledrum takes the format of happenings, poetic gestures, symposium and gatherings with a focus on non-hierarchical structures as a potential ‘nonplace’ for collaboration and co-creation. A platform that aims to contribute and exchange knowledge and methodologies through art events, symposiums, writings and workshops.

We approach languages found in feminist practices, to create strategies for decolonization of cognitive and somatic sensory systems, active imagination and perception. An important area of our interest and research lies in the roles and functions of technology within ancient holistic thinking. How and what kinds of technologies were used in practices of ritual, healing and purification, as of shamanism and other animistic practices? How through fiction, embodied cognition and performative practices can these technologies be accessed and viewed today, in a highly digitalized society?

Invisibledrum approaches to correlations between art, technology and sensual experience via animistic system of communication.
