If you happen to make it to Secret Project Robot from now until June 6th, you will see a great show by a new multimedia artist Raymond Salvatore. While his work may appear to be abstract, they are informed by philosophy and anthropological studies as much as contemporary psychedelic abstraction:
As an experimental filmmaker his work is abstract, are accompanied by his own electronic compositions as well as those of his various collaborators. His recent works include full scale immersive video and sound environments, large format digital prints that are then hand manipulated and painted on, and live video performances.
Many of Harmon’s films contain layered subliminal content, the source of this content is often derived from occult and mystical texts. Utilizing texts such as the Gates of Light (an early work of Hebraic mysticism, kabbalah) and Aleister Crowley’s Book of Lies, Harmon’s occult based films work as advanced meditative tools for use in occult rituals and the expansion of the conscious mind.
