This unique collaborative artwork transcends the boundaries of traditional art and delves deep into the realms of emotion, healing, and personal growth. The intention is to take the viewer on a journey through the energy centers of the body (chakras) to expand awareness and ascend the emotional scale.
You are invited on a journey to explore sensations, emotions and the connection with the inner symphony that resides within us all.
Each chakra within your body is represented as a radiant sphere, its color reflecting the energy it holds, while the musical key resonates harmoniously with its core.
Around each sphere, cymatics gracefully dance, they represent the geometrical patterns within our own body that constantly reshape and reform, based on our emotions, beliefs and thoughts.
As you explore each chakra you'll be wrapped by a symphony of sounds. Whether it's the soothing chime of a bell, the hooting owls, or the ethereal voices of opera, these soundscapes are carefully designed to engage your senses and spark emotions.
The noise interference woven into the artwork represents the distractions of daily life. The constant noise and input of information distort our connection with our truth. But we find that by focusing, listening, reflecting, and feeling, we can begin to heal, align, and uncover the profound truth that lies within us.
Everything we seek is already within. This artwork is an invitation to open up to our inner truth, to trust our intuition, and ascend the emotional scale.
It's a journey of self-discovery, an artistic tribute to the beauty and harmony that resides within each of us.

The Project Quest
At the heart of this project is the question: (How) can art intentionally be used as a catalyst for transforming emotional states, promoting healing and change using colors, geometry and sound?
The artwork is the result of this exploration and experiment.
1. Musical Keys
The musical keys we used in our artwork for each chakra are based on the spiritual and healing traditions.
They suggests that each chakra is connected to a specific musical key, and these associations are believed to influence and balance the chakras, with a specific healing domain.
Crown: B, Third eye: A, Throat: G, Hearth: F, Solar Plexus: E, Sacral: D, Root: C.
The cymatics in our artwork represent the geometrical patterns within our own body that constantly reshape and reform, based on our emotions, believes and thoughts.
Cymatics are the sound and vibrations made visible on different substances, such as liquids, powders, or solid surfaces.
It shows how sound waves can create intricate geometric shapes and patterns, revealing the relationship between sound, form and frequency.
We've choosen the colors known for each chakra, based on ancient wisdom and studied frequency domains.
These colors are used in Chromotherapy, also known as color therapy. It is a holistic healing practice that involves the use of colors to promote physical, emotional, and spiritual well-being.
It is based on the idea that different colors vibrate on a different emotional level and therefor having specific effects on a person's mood, energy, and overall health.
The concept of each chakra having its "own voice" refers to the idea that each chakra represents a distinct aspect of our being and can be balanced or healed through specific practices.
Each chakra's "voice" is symbolic of the unique energy it is associated with
It's a way of understanding and working with the different facets of our physical, emotional, and spiritual existence.

The dynamic 'Prima Materia' NFT contains 7 artworks and will be minted with the Doppelgänger Contract.
What Does the Doppelgänger Contract Do?
The Doppelgänger contract is like a special NFT. NFTs are used to represent digital art or collectibles, but this contract allows one NFT to contain several different pieces of art. So, instead of having separate NFTs for every artwork, you can put multiple artworks into one NFT. The artist gets to decide what artworks go in there and can add more over time. The person who owns this special NFT can choose which artwork to show from the collection.
Examples of How It Can Be Used:
Artist Subscription: An artist can keep adding new art to an existing NFT, sort of like an ongoing art subscription.
Multi-Work NFTs: Artists or authors can use it to create NFTs that tell a story with different parts added over time.
Multiple Versions and Sizes: Artists can put different versions of their art for different devices or platforms into one NFT.
Risk Mitigation: If a link to the art breaks or stops working, the artist can fix it by adding a new link.
