The only word for this is transplendent! A beautiful and innovative mix of art, theater, amusement park ride and spiritual experience – The Ascent by artist Yehuda Duenyas is a live-action performance installation that allows individual participants to levitate over 30 feet into the air through interactive sound and lighting via the power of their own focus and meditation.
I’m fascinated by the he juxtaposition of the Ascent. In order to achieve your future goal of reaching the top, you have to force yourself to stay in the ‘now’. And the more relaxed you are during your ascent, the more lights will flash and the louder the music will play.
