Watch Uno Lady’s GROUNDED: an ambient, experimental film based on meditation
Mixed media artists and musician, Christa Ebert (Uno Lady), made an experimental film and album inspired by mindfulness. GROUNDED includes mantras, soothing songs, and guided meditations for busy minds. Filmed mostly in her backyard in Cleveland, Ohio during the pandemic, Christa created stop-motion animations with homegrown flowers, sweet potatoes, drawings, and paintings, spliced with calming footage of nature, all set to a soundtrack composed specifically for the project.
Multi-media artist Sequoia Bostick contributed hypnotic animations to several of the videos. The meditations You Are Love & Breathe are guided by LaToya Kent a meditation teacher and musician who performs solo and as a part of Mourning [A] BLKstar. Cellist Erica Snowden-Rodríguez guides the breathing exercise, “Meditacion” in Spanish.
GROUNDED was made with support from the SPACES Urgent Art Fund and by the residents of Cuyahoga County through a public grant from Cuyahoga Arts & Culture.
