my new art piece

Jeevatma Leap
computer print, dimensions variable
Miguel Cortez, 2007

Jeevatma is the concept of the "soul" in the Ayyavazhi religion of South India. I came across this while researching for this series which takes the idea of empathy a step further by trying to imagine our consciousness jumping/leaping from one person to another. Just like accessing information from different computers, how would it feel to enter someone else's body and have access to their memories, feelings, etc..?
