Referring to remote viewing and extra sensory intelligence, The Basket proposes that in the same way we only understand bits and pieces of non-human consciousness and communication, we are just beginning to grasp the operating principles of our own.

On the floor underneath a single hanging speaker are placed three specimens of live Hericium Erinaceus. The sound work recorded on Ayaan’s phone plays quietly above, denoting parallels in intelligence and sensory communication capacities in human beings and non-human beings through invisible perception networks. These natural phenomenons can be only partially quantified by physics under the study of entanglement and the quantum matrix, networks of the metaphysical.

On a wall nearby The Basket is projected as a video text amalgam, telling the story of a fictional protagonist who came into contact with the topic of remote viewing and telepathy. Rather than evolving technologically towards artificial and machine intelligence it feels out some other options, such as – that there might be much to discover within the field of human intelligence.
