“Kamikakushi,” meaning “hidden by gods,” describes people vanishing from reality, often led into an unseen, mystical world by supernatural forces. “Mind wandering” involves the spirit or consciousness leaving the body, diverting from current tasks to enter a different state or dimension. Both concepts depict a separation from reality, driven by forces beyond personal control. Kamikakushi typically signifies a physical disappearance, while mind wandering represents an internal, spiritual journey, potentially granting access to otherwise unperceived insights.
This prompts the question: Can mind wandering be viewed as a brief spiritual Kamikakushi, where people unconsciously drift from reality, touching a wondrous spiritual realm? This project explores this invisible mental voyage, using a unique visual language to deepen our understanding of mind wandering, offering new perspectives and insights.
