MRS. MARX GOES VOID
CREATIVE CODE FESTIVAL @ LIGHTBOX NYC
Exploring the effects of language and colors on our individual mental wellness through the void
In collaboration with Clara Francesca & Mehow Skalski
Mrs. Marx Goes Void invites the audiences to become aware of the disempowering thoughts that are trapped inside their subconscious.
Disempowering thoughts such as,
"I can never get anything right."
"I feel so stupid."
"My brain doesn't work."
"What if I will never be happy?"
"I am worthless."
And replace those negative inner dialogues by saying the power mantras aloud into the void,
"I am open to everything and attached to nothing."
"It is okay to keep learning and growing."
"My voice matters, even when I'm still working things out."
"I am here for me and that is the best place to be."
"I love myself, I am loved by the people around me."
The power mantras are then projected onto the 360° screen, surrounding the audiences with vibrant colors and raising their awareness to shift into a positive inner dialogue, more empathetic to self.
MRS MARX (Karl Marx’s wife, trapped within a pre-conditioned world) represents the distorted blindspots we all have about ourselves, often trapped within our speech & thoughts.
VOID PEOPLE (the huge metaphoric hole so many of us feel on a daily basis) represents the healing healthy antidote to this - changing our inner & outer dialogue.
