Simploring 2019 (118) “The Mind Melter”

On Thursday, November 28th, I read a snippet in Aneli Abeyante’s group chat. Aneli shared a landmark to “The Mind Melter” by Thoth Jantzen. She added: “A visual psychoacoustic trip To Vegetal Planet. Can’t miss this amazing experience”.

I went there the next day and it was an amazing experience. “The Mind Melter” is a video art installation by Thoth Jantzen, an artist I ad never heard about before. The installation is made of many geometrical arranged semitransparent cubes. In the center are is one cube that contains many other cubes again and 3 objects looking like hourglasses are at each side of the center cube.

Don’t forget to allow media (auto-play) and to allow inworld scripts to play media the settings of your viewer. Furtheron use Advanced Lighting.

Now as you stand in the installation surrounded by the cubes a video is projected on all surfaces, reflecting the video ….. the pictures will cross the edges of the cubes. Sometimes you can recognize flowers, faces, insects, animals but the pictures kind of melt, every viewing angle gives a different impression. At other times you can read words. The world around you is colourful, sometimes green, somtimes, blue and on other times red.

The installation is accompanied with psychedelic music – you almost make a drug trip (I admit I never experienced one ever but that might be what you see). “The Mind Melter” is an intriguing art installation. From Thoth Jantzen’s profile I got the information that “The Mind Melter” was opened on November 13th and it is not yet clear how long it could be visited.
Thank you Vroum Short for enabling this installation at VeGaTal PLaNeT and thank you Thoth for providing this experience for us all.
