In this introductory course we will explore what is conscious media-making, what are some of the different potential forms of conscious media-making, and how different states and stages of consciousness effect the media-making process. We will also be exploring how these structures of consciousness within us are communicated between us, the works we create and the individuals and collectives that experience our works…and how this knowledge can be used to create deeper and more transformative media experiences for creators and viewers on the individual and collective levels.

In the latest TEHNC Podcast, host Jonathan Steigman and I explore the recent incident where a 16-year-old kid from Covington Catholic School faced off with a Native American elder on the Mall in Washington and how it unfolded on social media with amazing speed. Jonathan and I were struck by how the many different perceptual layers were quickly peeled back, and we unpack the event and surrounding social media whirlwind exploring how we may be witnessing a new collective intelligence being birthed, one that transcends centralized legacy media.
