The modern world is fast paced, relentless and often exhausting, but fear not – Georgia Tucker is offering viewers the rare chance to take a step back and appreciate a slower approach to life with her presentation of LENTE, an immersive art installation showcased at Mailbox, Birmingham created with Experience Studios.
Inspired by the 72 micro-seasons in a Japanese Calendar and a meditative approach to life, the multi-sensory display will explore the benefits of mindfulness and reconnecting with every element of nature. The exhibition has been scented by premium home and beauty brand, Rituals. The scent Georgia has chosen is called The Ritual of Karma and is inspired by ancient Hindu belief that you can radiate positivity by living with good karma and practising kindness. The scent is enriched with white tea and holy lotus to immerse people in positive summer energy and achieve wellness for mind, body and soul. In LENTE, viewers will be encouraged to make time for calm and for themselves.
This mesmerizing installation will blend the digital garden space with a soundscape and set design; exploring the enjoyment of watching life grow, and investigate how different light, shadows and reflections affect the beauty of colour throughout the seasons. However, Lente will not only offer an impressive visual display, but it will also explore how meditation and art can improve mental wellbeing. According to the Mental Health Foundation, spending time in nature and the arts both have valuable roles in mental health, helping to boost confidence and alleviate anxiety, depression and stress.
