This sculpture addresses the topic of diverse artifacts that men created throughout history to conjure up nature. —Amulets, rituals, words, etcetera— It intends to include the Electroencephalography (EEG) in this tradition. For that purpose, it was intended to create a magic ritual where the public can materialize their brain activity through fire modeling in real time and see themselves reflected in it. An interactive mirror than can be, not only seen, but heard and felt is created. During this act of techno-shamanism, the public will also control their brain activity at will by trying to repeat a gesture made by the self-portrait of fire.
