Aisthesis in the Shaman's Diagram

The Shaman in front of the installation core-the padlocked metal cage Workstation.
Perception intention: archival of the archive is possible only when outside of the Workstation which symbolizes the Self. The Shaman hold a mask which is actually an exact replica of his face. He wears boxing gloves. He is surrounded by items that are used in the popular media as tropes, clich├ęs, and stereotypes intended for mind control, such as, broken glass, mirrors, and mask, but he confronts them with blankets, salt, umbilical cords, etc.-items that represent awareness, essence, spiritual ancestry, and freedom from mind control.
