In the center of this room lay the rests of a technoshamanic rite. An act of gratitude to the earth for the multitude of rocks, minerals, cristals that humanity extracts from her to assemble our new technologic tools (computers, phones, tv, screens, beamers…). An occasion to recognize the origins of these resources by giving love and gratitude to our mother earth, as our ancestors used to do.
