Experimental Drawing and Motion
Motion as the purpose exploration of drawing. The "thickening" of experience as information gatherers."The manner in which the brain integrates information from different senses in order to boost perception and guide actions is a major research topic in cognitive neuroscience (Calvert et al., 2004; Spence and Driver, 2004; Stein, 2012) and a topic of increasing interest in the design of virtual environments. Multisensory integration of bodily inputs, in particular, has been recently proposed as a key mechanism underlying the experience of oneself within a body, which is perceived as one’s own (body ownership), which occupies a specific location in space (self-location), and from which the external world is perceived (first person-perspective), i.e., the different components of what has been called bodily self-consciousness (Blanke and Metzinger, 2009; Blanke, 2012; Blanke et al., 2015)"

Within the mysterious comfort of darkness, is our nourishing decay."Mycorrhizal organisms form a mutually dependent beneficial relationship with the roots of host plants, ranging from trees to grasses. “Myco” means mushroom, “rhizal” means roots. The collection of filament of cells that grow into a mushroom body is called the mycelium. The mycelia of these mycorrhizal mushrooms can form an exterior sheath covering the roots of plants and are called ecto-mycorrhizal. When they invade the interior of the root cells of host plants they are called endomycorrhizal. In either case, both organisms benefit from this association. Plant growth is accelerated. The resident mushroom mycelium increases the plant’s absorption of nutrients, nitrogenous compounds, and essential elements (phosphorous, copper, and zinc). By growing beyond the immediate root zone, the mycelium channels and concentrates nutrients from afar. Plants with mycorrhizal fungal partners can also resist diseases far better than those without."
