Description of idea

Describe your idea and concept of your work in relation to the festival outlines:

Dialogue as a part of human capability has a great power to change the world that we live in. Many problems created only because of miscommunications or the failure of the dialogue. We often questioning on what is wrong with the dialogue by looking at the external factors of when, where, how the dialogue happened. What we often fail to see is actually the dialogue within ourselves. The dialogue between our mind and body. The Inner Dialogue.
It has been demonstrated over the eons that the human mind is incapable of discerning truth as the stunning evidence of pain and suffering mounts, not only at the individual level but also at the level of entire civilizations. Dr. David R. Hawkins, MD, PhD has created a tool that he calls the Map of Consciousness (MOC). This map was developed to overcome the inherent limitation of the human mind, whereby falsity has been misidentified as truth. His ultimate goal “is a connecting of the dots so that the hidden picture emerges. The hope is that this work might undo the very sources of pain, suffering, and failure, and assist the evolution of human consciousness in each of us to rise to the level of joy that should be the essence of each and every human being’s experience”

What kind of communication approach do you use?

based on Dr. Hawking’s Map Of Consciousness, which I’ve been trying to apply within myself, I created a visual diary of my way of interpreting each level of MOC in a series of doodles .Dr. Hawking’s MOC uses numerical data of spiritual strength which I found really hard to be counted, so, instead of using numbers, I use words to actually help myself to get through each level of consciousness. By using words, I’m able to practice orally and perform a dialogue within my body and mind to increase my level of consciousness. In time, I will be more aware of what I feel, what my intuition and able to control my inner dialogue, which will definitely increase the advancement of humanity if more people know it.

What are in your opinion concrete benefits to the society because of your communication?

My communication which is a sequence GIF of Map of Consciousness will benefit society by giving the experience of changes in the state of consciousness from ego-based to completely overwhelming state of enlightenment. With the dramatic changes of font and colour, this sequence will help people to realize the changes.

What did you personally learn from creating your submitted work?

by doing this work itself, it gives me a therapeutic feeling and so much reflective experience going through each state of consciousness and try to express the feeling.

Why is your work, GOOD communication WORK?

It is a good work because it is so simple and attractive in a form of animation GIF. In this short attention span generation era, we have no longer patience to learn about anything from scratch. An animation GIF of this reflective typographic artworks will be a snap of therapy for us.

Where and how do you intent do implement your work?

Go viral on every social media.

Did your intervention had an effect on other Media. If yes, describe the effect? (Has other media reported on it- how? Were you able to change other media with your work- how?)

No, it doesn't have any effect on other media. This sequence of consciousness could be implemented on different kind of media, but I believe that animation GIF would be the perfect media.
