For the amazonian Indians of several tribes, it is known that there is a motherly spirit, who is part of every living thing. Sacred entheogen plants, specifically Yaje/Ayahuasca, are used by many as a portal to meet her. 

Shamans or “taitas” as they are called in Colombia have visions; for them human experience is only an illusion, just a fraction of what is out there. Reality is the one of the spirits and she is the mother queen of that world. 

This project explores my visions during my quest to find her in the Putumayo region of Colombia. Initially for two weeks with several sessions and afterwards also with sessions in the Netherlands; my intake of Yaje gave me a different perception and I begon to form a lexicon of visuals while feeling more and more in tune with myself. I started to feel like  walking guided by the spirit of nature, I began experiencing a new way of seeing and looking at the world.
