Artist Statement:


    Lessons on Leaving Your Body features Jake Wells, DIY drone builder and possibly the world’s first Remote Control (RC) Christian Minister. While flying, crashing and repairing his homemade drone in the wilds of the Pacific Northwest, Wells recounts the story of his techno-spiritual awakening, from a life in which he felt remotely controlled by other forces, to his current state. Footage of Wells observing himself from the drone’s point of view using First Person View (FPV) gear, and shots reminiscent of romantic landscape paintings depicting the wider wilderness setting in which he resides, are woven together with monologues based on Wells’ own brand of theology that is concerned with the connection between FPV flight, out of body experiences and the nature of the soul.
