What is Geodelia?
Geodelia is based on moving pictures and comprises video and audio data, but it
does not rely on the conventions that define theatrical cinema. It does not employ the use of actors, it contains no dialogue, it has no discernible plot, and it does not adhere to the most of the other conventions that define motion pictures as entertainment.
Geodelia invokes
Geology as a mechanism for obtaining aesthetic inspiration. The animated compositions of Geodelia are an expression of geological objects but they may exist with a degree of independence from visual references in the world. Indeed Geodelia features the element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions and non-sense.

When and where Geodelia?

Boom Festival is one of the most important music festivals in Europe and it is located at the heart of the Naturtejo Geopark. Bringing together the latest inspirations in psychedelic audio and visuals, Boom Festival features music, paint, sculpture, video art, theater and various kinds of workshops.
UNESCO Geopark Naturtejo started to develop a series of projects in order to promote geological heritage in the Boom Festival. Among these projects, I authored a Video Art installation named Geodelia, linking Geology, Art and Psychedelic Culture.

Left: I designed a vinyl sculpture to physically introduce the "Geodelica" videos. It is inspired by a trilobite and its associated trace fossil, Cruziana.

Below: a presentation of Geodelia as seen in the Boom Festival. Check out also the other two parts ( part 2, part 3)!

Geodelia is also called "Geodelica Trilogy" because it is constituted by three groups of visuals.
