To Kiss the World Through a Veil of Lead

‘To kiss the world through a veil of lead’ deals with imagining experiences that are alien to us, experiences that lie at the limit or even beyond what humans can feel and understand. Paraphrasing Thomas Nagel, it attempts to know what it is like to be a bat, an octopus, an infection, a planet, an erupting volcano.

Inside a dark and silent room, a different composition of words and synthesised sounds plays every 15 minutes, focussing on the experiences and sensations of a non-human being.
