Repoussant les limites et défiant les conventions, leurs images plongent dans d’étranges limbes entre rêverie et réalisme pour nous ouvrir les yeux sur un monde de perplexité et de libre-pensée, où tout est permis ».

“Supernatural project is a never-ending self-exploration of two artists in context of the unknown. It deals with subconscious and intuition, which are unable to be explained by science. At the same time the project strives to convey artist’s personal insightful sublime experience caused by the unknown natural environment, erasing a line between the real and the imagined. As main source of inspiration for acquiring ideas Synchrodogs used their own nighttime meditation technique they developed working together since 2008. With ‘Supernatural’ project artistic duo recreated visions they managed to see (and make notes of) while experimenting with meditation and lucid dreaming techniques, used their own constructed images as a vehicle for erasing the line between the real and the illusive, between the natural and the artificial, uncovering edges of their own subconscious, using intuition as their main guide travelling across endless deserted territories of America. Shooting Supernatural project Synchrodogs went on a 4000 mile road trip to rediscover its own capacities and energy limits, the way a human can walk into darkness, go straight into unexplored, relying on intuition, go where subconscious leads, and feel safe in the World of the unknown.” Synchrodogs

“Le projet surnaturel est une auto-exploration sans fin de deux artistes dans le contexte de l’inconnu. Il traite du subconscient et de l’intuition, qui ne peuvent être expliqués par la science. Dans le même temps, le projet s’efforce de transmettre l’expérience personnelle et perspicace sublime de l’artiste causée par l’environnement naturel inconnu, effaçant une ligne entre le réel et l’imaginaire. En tant que principale source d’inspiration pour acquérir des idées, les Synchrodogs ont utilisé leur propre technique de méditation nocturne qu’ils ont développée en travaillant ensemble depuis 2008. Avec le projet ‘Supernatural’, le duo artistique a recréé des visions qu’ils ont réussi à voir (et à prendre des notes) tout en expérimentant des techniques de méditation et de rêve lucide, ont utilisé leurs propres images construites comme un véhicule pour effacer la ligne entre le réel et l’illusoire, entre le naturel et l’artificiel, découvrant les limites de leur propre subconscient, utilisant l’intuition comme guide principal pour voyager à travers des territoires désertés infinis de l’Amérique. Shooting Supernatural project Synchrodogs a fait un road trip de 4000 miles pour redécouvrir ses propres capacités et limites d’énergie, la façon dont un humain peut marcher dans les ténèbres, aller directement dans l’inexploré, en s’appuyant sur l’intuition, aller là où le subconscient mène et se sentir en sécurité dans le monde de l’inconnu. » Synchrodogs

“Supernatural è un progetto senza fine di auto-esplorazione dell’ incognito di due artisti. Il lavoro fa riferimento al subconscio e all’intuizione, non spiegabili dalla scienza, e, nello stesso tempo, cerca di esprimere la sublime esperienza personale nell’ambiente naturale sconosciuto, che annulla il confine tra reale e immaginario. Come principale risorsa di ispirazione creativa, Synchrodogs hanno utilizzato una propria tecnica di meditazione notturna sviluppata fin dal 2008. Attraverso SUPERNATURAL il duo ha ricreato alcune visioni che hanno avuto (e di cui hanno preso nota) mentre sperimentavano tecniche di meditazione e onirismo cosciente, usando le proprie immagini come veicolo per cancellare il confine tra reale e illusione, tra naturale e artificiale, scoprendo abissi del proprio inconscio e usando l’intuizione come principale guida per attraversare gli sconfinati territori deserti americani. Con Supernatural Synchrodogs, hanno intrapreso un viaggio di 4000 miglia per riscoprire le proprie capacità e i propri limiti energetici; il modo in cui un essere umano cammina nell’ombra, si addentra nell’inesplorato contando sull’intuizione e va dove il subconscio lo porta sentendosi sicuro nel mondo dell’ignoto.” Synchrodogs
