Environmental consciousness hypothesis

The ‘Environment consciousness hypothesis’ theory is inspired by Carl Jung's theory on archetypes, Edward O. Wilson’s hypothesis on Biophilia, Daniel Kehlmann’s novel F, and Xuanlin Wang’s master’s natural material research project of the "bio-system" - assuming that the world’s environment where we live exists in the environmental consciousness which resembles invisible and omnipresent elements around our body. It consistently creates input of signals that are processed in our sub-consciousness by our breath, our movement, and our experience. Like dust that is only noticed once it has accumulated, humans will go unnoticed until we accumulate within the environmental consciousness. This consciousness will become a medium within the trinity system, which spontaneously and infinitely transports the messages into our subconscious. These messages are a conduit for altering our emotion, reaction, movement, ideology, cognition, and decisions. They further influence our artworks within this interactive, mutual, and circulatory system. The circulatory nature of the trinity system is based on the seasonal movement in relation to symbols between the environment, the human and the art in an endless succession. As a whole, in essence, have we ever consciously processed our subconscious? And how does it affect us, our reaction, our cognition, or even the artworks? If we can consciously process the environmental consciousness, how will we be changed?
