Earth Stories from Fred Adam

Below, the list of my favourite personal Earth Stories i created along the years in the context of my collaboration as Art director with the scientist Rich Blundell. They reflect how i intend to reconnect with nature in a very simple a passionate way with a little bit of art, wisdom and science. Each video represents one or several concepts of the Cosmosis defined by Rich Blundell like, fractal thinking, radical affection, appreciation and gratitude. These videos (and more) are geolocated on the Earth Stories interactive map we created for the Oika project.

Experiencing the Cosmos

I intend to express in less than 2 minutes and without previous plan, the experience i am living from the hammock with the Earth. First of all i enter into space and spend several minutes and even hours to be accepted and rooted. I open as much as i can all my senses and when i feel connected, i use my mobile phone to record with sounds and images my intimate feeling with nature. I like to call these short audiovisuals Hammocking Cinema. The story and the worlds unfold as if the Earth itself, the trees, the insects, the light and the wind reflect their beauty through my body and my mind. It is when mobile technology really is mobile, a powerful receiver and an transmitter of Gaia.

Cosmosis - Cosmic Pond

The very short movie Cosmic Pond is an expression of a deep immersion in a tiny pond, a spontaneous and intuitive hammocking story from Fred Adam recorded with a smartphone for the Cosmosis project omniscopic.org

My special thinking behind this is that we can explore the universe by enjoying patterns like fluid dynamics.

Cosmosis - Fractal Thinking - Caracola Marina

In this Cosmosis Hammocking video we explore the fractal dimension of the marine shell and the sound produced by peasantry to alert people on the imminent arriving of a water flood from the river.

Estoy ahora en el barranco de la Higuerrica en el monte de Orihuela. Suenan los aviones y tengo conmigo una caracola marina. Esta caracola servía en la huerta para dar la señal de alerta cuando había riadas y nos conecta también con un tiempo geológico cuando la vega baja y Murcia estaban bajo el mar. Hice sonar la caracola marina una vez y sono, reboto varias veces. Esa frecuencia única es una conexión poética, sensorial, auditiva. Es un objeto multidimensional, una maquina para viajar en el espacio y el tiempo. Tengo ahora mismo a un petirrojo a cinco, tres metros de mi.

ENGLISH VERSION - In this Cosmosis Hammocking video we explore that every place on Earth deserves our attention and we can discover how the powerful ability of resilience of nature contains the forest below our feet. #thisiscosmosis

Celebrating Light on Earth

I am observing the Earth touched by millions of hands at the entrance at Oxford Street subway. Practicing Cosmosis is not only about being in a beautiful and lushy environment. We can also practice in the middle of the city. #thisiscosmosis

FADE TO WHITE

Fade to White, climbing the mountain of el Picacho in the sierra of Crevillente, at the right place and time to live a fade to white experience, the magic hour very rare on the mediterranean coast and at this altitude, thanks for this gift!

Almond Tree, i like to call you Life after Leaf because you blossom after loosing your leafs. Your pink and red flowers are like my blood, and i like your sound. Your symphony is telling me that you and the bees are a same energy of life, and bees would not exist without you and you would not exist without bees. So i am

Bees, our Cosmic Story

Looking closely at nature, we can discover ongoing cosmic stories all around us. These bees taking waters for their hive look like space ships in orbit and they are in orbit on Earth. Sensing these stories with poetry, art and science is a way to discover the deeper cosmic nature we share with every rocks, every plants and species.

The Songs of the Segura River - radical affection

The sound of the river is made of water, frogs, insects, birds and leafs. A marvellous symphony is played days and nights at the Segura river near Murcia in Spain. Close your eyes and see with your ears. The light playing with the canopy and branches is drawing a map of connections on our eyelids.

life trails in the backyard

An Earth Story movie recorded in London by Fred Adam during summer 2018. This video features the use of a motion detector video app (Cambush) for the shots with foxes.

Une Earth Story, une balade hivernale nocturne avec le hamac dans un petit bois près de Tours avec une intention, produire quelques notes avec la Quena pour dire qu'on est là avec une intention de paix et un désir de dialogue. #thisiscosmosis

An Earth Story from a winter night walk with the hammock in a small wood near Tours with an intention, produce some notes with the Quena to manifest an intention of peace and a desire for dialogue.

Timeless Tree Algarrobo

How much time do we have to feel beautiful trees with all our senses ? This video takes the time of setting up the hammock for a timeless friendship, touching eternity.

Cabo de Gata magic hour

This video is the memory of a hammocking day and magic hour in Cabo de Gata in Spain. It is a marvellous natural reserve full of old antique marine volcanoes with an infinity of mineral colors. Hammocking with other people sometimes is a good way to create community and cultivate this moment of shared plenitude when we are all together in silence, becoming the landscape.

Since 20017 we organise each 2 or 3 months the planetary hammocking day in Spain and more and more people join the group and become also hammockers in their life.

parpadeo de luz

Blinking light, when the wind and the sunlight mark their time on the surface of the Earth. Every animals eyes blinking are reflecting this rhythm. #thisiscosmosis

entering into the secret spot - gratitude to the ancestors

When i go to my secret spot for a hammocking time, i like to be greatful to my ancestors and be thankful for every plants, insects and animales living in this place. #thisiscosmosis

feeling the rotation of the Earth

Being in the pine forest, setting up the hammock and staying still during a long time, looking at the sun crossing the branches. The inmobility is the condition to see the Earth's rotation. #thisiscosmosis

Feeling the Sun's rotation and energy from nature and VR

In this movie i explore the motion of the sun from the hammock and the flow of light particles in VR. I use VR technology to jump into the light flow, on the other side of the sensorial experience on Earth. I am using the creative VR software "Particulate", playing with particles to expand the experience in a new complementary angle. I am questioning how we can get advantage of VR as a complementary technology to be more aware of the forces of nature and the Universe. #particulate #VR #nature #sun #thisiscosmosis #oika

fluid dynamics from nature and VR

Fluid dynamics are everywhere, in the rotation of the milky way in the form of a gigantic spiral and in your cup of tea when you are rotating the spoon. Being aware of fluid dynamics across scales is a wonderful way to feel connected with nature and the cosmos. The VR software Particulate from Mike Turitzin is the perfect tool to build the bridge between nature and VR. This powerful tool helped me to understand and feel the forces at play, building amazing patterns you can create in virtual reality and find in the physical world. I deeply recommend Particulate for digital artists who want to integrate the dynamics of particles in their art and connect technology with the Earth in a positive way.  

Become a glowing creature from the abyss

Are you an artist using the VR software Particulate ? i challenge you to become a glowing creature from the abyss for a while. Looking forward to discover your mutation in VR... #thisiscosmosis #particulate

Oika Arts by Fred Adam

This 3 minutes video introduces Fred as an artist integrating the concepts of Oika in his practice. The video goes through the four P steps “Person / Place/ Practice / Prosper”. The final message of the video is that a certain form of art practices inspired by Oika can lead to environmental regeneration projects involving the local community as a response to the anthropocene. oikaspain.com oika.com
