Walk In The Woods: Processing sketch 20190629a uses 3 short film loops recorded June 22, 2019 in the Lowell Dracut Tyngsboro State Forest, using Michel Serres model of the host/guest and parasite. The host and guest are blended together based on ‘maximum value’ (LIGHTEST); an amiable relationship. The parasite disrupts the blend, modifying color (OVERLAY). This happens randomly, 50% of the time. Also at unpredictable moments in the film roles change, the host becomes parasite, the parasite the guest, and the guest the host … and so on.

Great interaction, listening, blend of textures.

Egregoros represents a “thoughtform” or “collective group mind”, an autonomous psychic entity made up of, and influencing, the thoughts of a group of people. The Greek word ἑγρήγορος means “Watcher.”
