We are more than the worlds we filter

We are more than the worlds we filter - Joseph Pace

Filtranisme (Filterism) is a philosophical and artistic movement founded in Paris in the mid-1980's by Joseph Pace, the poet Pablo Maria Landi and doctor Jean-Marc Mayenga. 

The movement was lanched in Paris on July 1987 in the Manifesto Filtraniste at the Cité Universitarire and at the Sorbonne University. 

Interdisciplinary research when is applied to art and everyday life is one of the most important developments of our time. When this research involves the convergence of Science and Art, the relationships between them assume particular importance. 

Also thanks to Pace's scientific and artistc background, and in collaboration with a number of distingushed research scientists and intellectuals, filtranisme has been working in this field for over thirty years.

Explaining: "To survive we filter air, water, politics, economics, religion, love... But our brain does not help us to understand this process and for the most of the time we are unaware of that. We need to wake up ourselves for what is really important and works for us, as the primacy of spirituality, beauty, intelligence and vital force. The fact of filter air, water, food politics or religion, makes filterists of us all in every moment of our lives." 

In the1990, the encounter with the sociologist Kurt Heinrich Wolff (and his "Surrender and Catch" epistemological concepts), inspired Pace to deeply explore what the filterist universal intuition "we are the worlds we filter" is about. 

Stating: "Filterism is a nascent state, a new condition in which people, spirituality, art and communication come together to new realities." Pace's work also represented future developments in scientific though by anticipating the latest theories in neuroscience, the complexe relationships between mind, spirituaity and algorithm-mind-maps.
