Olga Fedorova is a multidisciplinary artist working in the field of conceptual art with the following media: photography, video, performance, text. Fedorova's practice focuses on research and interaction with the environment (natural, urban, gallery) as a space of meanings. In them, the artist seeks and shows emptiness - points of uncertainty and "shakiness" of languages, misunderstandings and communication. Gently invading space, she observes how meanings change, transform and transmit. With the help of texts, Fedorova seeks to fill the void of meaning, speaking where people usually remain silent.

Shodō (shodo - "the way of writing") is the Japanese art of calligraphy.
It is practiced in Zen Buddhism as a way of meditation, concentration, purification of the mind and achieving satori - enlightenment.
When performing calligraphy exercises, it is necessary to free the heart and mind from the worries of the surrounding world. Focus only on the meaning of the symbol being created, become one with it.
By controlling the brush, the one who writes gains control over their own body, thoughts, emotions. By assimilating the spellings of symbols, by conquering them, they also gain power over what this symbols mean - over phenomena and feelings, both positive and negative. This project is a video meditation, 1 channel, with sound, lasting 4 minutes and 40 seconds. It is designed to be projected onto a wall in a darkened, soundproofed room.
Potentially, if the idea of ​​integrating Japanese calligraphy as an art therapy technique will develop, it will be possible to create a mobile application where patients would have the opportunity to practice meditation through writing hieroglyphs in digital format, using a tablet and a touch pen. An art therapy specialist will be able to select programs from
a catalog of hieroglyphs according to the patient's requests - both relaxing or concentrating, and those aimed at visualization and working out negative states and emotions.
