Special Comments on "Feeling Arts"

"The experience was very meditative. At the beginning, I concentrated on images on the canvas. Later, my attention turned inward, and I became very relaxed. At the end, I had a feeling of peace and happiness. I believe that this kind of presentation for the eyes, ears, and mind has great therapeutic potential as well and could be very useful for many kinds of patients."

"Wonderful artistic experience. Immersion and meditation in the remaining world. Everyone has slightly different impressions. For me, for example, it made me think of living cells. To tissue, to cells, in any case something alive. The fact of associating this visual, the color and the painting in this moment of relaxation is extraordinary. I really liked it, I find it very effective, you immerse yourself in a meditative atmosphere, it allows you to travel. The fact of seeing with the music is very effective. It's like an inner journey. Some people like to travel alone but it made me think of the loneliness of people in their rooms. There is television, screens, it is very mind-numbing. It's nice to be able to see something else."

"The artist and the canvas are an incomplete triangle. The audience completes the tripod individually or en masse. As director of the art program at Stanford Hospital, this concept of art is integral in my work with patients , family members, and visitors who renjoy the hospital's art collection. When I experienced MR. KITAMURA'S FEELINGARTS, I realized how deeply true this statement is. The canvas, the lights, sounds provided me with a unique opportunity for me to transcend everyday stress, pain, worry and relax completely .  Different from Guided imagery, FEELING ARTS invites the viewer to interpret images transformed by light and music. For patients with chronic pain, life threatening illness, or confined to their beds, FEELING ARTS can be an emotional catharsis."

"I would like to introduce a wonderful kind of art to you. It creates a visionary world of beauty in your mind with light, sound and an abstract painting on canvas. The art created there changes completely depending on your state of mind. As a result, you are guided to the world of your own imagination. I think you can even forget where you are, because of being wrapped up in this pure world of art, which eventually brings you peace of mind."
