The Power of Art & Video to Create a Shared Experience

I’ve got one more video to share. It didn’t quite make sense for it to be a part of the Fantastic Video Contest, but it is one of the most amazing things I’ve ever seen. I’ve rarely experienced the feeling of my jaw literally dropping, but this did it. The first minute and a half is fascinating, but then things shift and the power of art to heal, connect and create a shared experience is revealed. While I, as a distant viewer, can participate in the emotional experience, the tearful, but hopefully faces of the audience members who actually lived through the experience being portrayed proves the authenticity of the artist’s story.

If you are viewing this post in an email, you can see the video here.

    That’s quite a video Sean. Thanks for posting it. Here’s nice write-up on her art: http://wesha.homeip.net/ and her background: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kseniya_Simonova. Amazingly, she’s only been doing this for a few years.

  2. That’s amazing that she can do something like that with so little experience. Thanks for the links!
