When I quit my job as a psychotherapist, now a bit more then 2 years ago ? I was daydreaming about what I would like to do next. In my daydream I saw myself sitting at the entrance of a prehistoric cave. I was in a kind of trance state, singing and looking at mental images. After that I returned in an office where I did work together with several scientists in a very enthusiastic ambiance.
I did some explorations but then a lot of other things happened.
Then in June 2015 I happened to be in the Dordogne in Les Eyzies-sur -Tayac, in what people call the prehistoric world capital and that dream woke up again.
I did get some books on the research into prehistoric art. I was happy to discover that there is a body of research dealing with the characteristics of altered states of consciousness. My knowledge and experience as a psychologist might be useful. Elaborating my daydream I came to this artistic research project. Artistic because that allows for the biggest amount of freedom to explore things in different ways; intellectual, emotional and from altered states , not rational approaches and communicate my experience in different forms.
