Improvisation on glass harp by Jonas Bylund

By means of collective endeavours, such as dream experiments, hypnosis events, and re-enactments, The Bureau of (Extraordinary) Mind Travel functions as a conceptual framework where I explore the realm of the unconscious as a source of experience based knowledge. In this ongoing project I borrow methods from a variety of sources to set up participatory situations that approaches the imaginary. By setting up opportunities for experiences like this, my aim is to explore whether situations like this could result in the creation of a new collective myth.

A second intervention by the Bureau takes place at Finlandsinstitutet on September 21, 2013 in collaboration with professional hypnotist Fredrik Praesto.
