Event description
Metta Grove is a meditative multimedia art experience and community gathering.

About this Event

Simon Haiduk (www.simonhaiduk.com) is a multimedia artist working with painting, music, and animation. His themes most often have an emphasis on nature and metaphysical energy. After many years of exploration, Simon has found a synthesis of these creative mediums, fusing them into a mesmerizing audio-visual journey.

“I'm curious about our psychic connection to nature and the interconnected source of all life. My art is an ongoing experiment of investigating and expressing those energies.”

The live performance features stunning visuals of Simon’s original artworks transformed into animations. These animations are remixed live, interacting with luminous textures of light and sound. Many layers provide for a unique expression each time as though each painting is being re-created and brought to life. The music is an evolving soundscape of Simon’s own ambient creations, flowing into heartwarming melodies and pulsing rhythms from other collaborative musicians such as Yaima and Anilah. This multimedia presentation is a meditation our intrinsic connection to nature, the foundations of our reality as light and sound, evoking higher states of consciousness through enchantment, and honoring our interconnected life energies for a more peaceful world.

Simon will share insights into his creative process, including a discussion around the use of plant medicines/entheogens. His partner Jane (www.janecalm.com), who is a registered therapeutic counselor, will share insights into body-mind connections, community and our relationship with plants. Together, they will lead a guided meditation to align the group energy and create an intentional container going into the audio-visual experience.
