Awake your imaginative consciousness.
Expand your perception.
Reach the present moment.
NOMADslow.tv provides a "stream of consciousness", an endless flow of meditative videos inducing a psychological effect known as "Soft Fascination", a term coined in 1989 by psychologists Rachel and Stephen Kaplan. The Kaplan's research on Attention Restoration Therapy (A.R.T.) examines different types and qualities of attention and their associations with mental health and cognitive functioning, revealing that certain types of attention may tire out your brain and contribute to stress, willpower failures, and other problems. Meanwhile, activities that broaden and soften your attention may reinvigorate your brain and promote psychological and cognitive wellbeing.
NOMADslow.tv videos contemplate the poetic beauty of our world, creating an hypnotic transcendent state, relaxing your mind, restoring your brain power, and elevating your mood.
Available as a screensaver and live stream, NOMAD also creates A.R.T. immersive environments and produces custom content and video installations for public spaces. Auspiciously created in March 2020 by Montreal filmmaker, Jason Rodi, the images and sounds captured all over the world are specifically designed to illicit the intended reaction from its viewers. The content is soothing and uplifting without demanding your attention. With very long takes, poetic perspectives, and impressionistic storytelling, the films intertwine to create a cohesive universe spanning beyond the globe and into the imaginary. The world portrayed is not realistic but idealistic.
“Our species has to content itself with having enough without surrendering to laziness. The way we do that is by being creative with everything we already have! This is the overarching concept behind NOMAD, and the purpose behind our films. Like life, NOMAD is live and our message is simple: ALL WE HAVE IS NOW.”
says Jason Rodi, creator and director of NOMAD.
About Jason Rodi
This is not Rodi’s first pioneering of the mediascape.
In 2001 he started MomentFactory.com streaming weekly “moments” years before YouTube or Vimeo existed. The site gathered videos from his contemporaries and soon became a company that would revolutionize how video, lighting, and decor can work together to transform environments, enhance performances, or tell a story. In 2008 he created NOMAD to explore further possibilities in story-telling, notably immersive theatre, transmedia, and live streaming. His dreams have led him atop the highest mountain on every continent, the North and South Poles, and sailing across the seven seas to the most remote island on the planet. In 2017 Jason was awarded the Meritorious Service Cross of Canada for creating Moment Factory, named the world's most innovative live events company of 2022 by Fast Company. NOMAD studios are off the tracks of the Montreal Mile End, streaming original videos daily on NOMADlife.tv.
