For this installment of RADAR NYC, we asked our contributor Shantell Martin (RADAR ep 26 – Hidden Oras) to curate a blog post and send in what she’s into at the moment. She sent us back some really great content, and a lot of it touches on similar themes to those in her own work, which you can see in her episode. Here, you’ll find a lot of deep questions about consciousness, awareness and the universe, and the connections between them all.


Gregg Braden – The Holographic Nature of The Universe

This video features a speech by author Gregg Braden in which he says that our collective consciousness is holographic in nature; that is, a pattern which is part of a larger pattern, which is part of an even larger pattern, and so on, like how cells are part of a larger organism. And if one piece of that pattern changes, it would allow for the rest of the pattern to adapt. Honestly, he can explain it much better than I can, and whether you ultimately agree or not, it definitely makes for an interesting listen.


Claude VonStroke

Claude VonStroke is a San Francisco-based DJ originally from Detroit who wants to have fun rather than look cool, and encourages his listeners to do the same at his gigs. It’s definitely difficult to stand around while listening to his music; it’s the kind of house techno that demands a dance party. Starting off as a filmmaker, in 2005 he started his “dirtybird” label, which has released over 40 EPs as well as two of his own albums, including his latest album “Bird Brain.”

Lynne McTaggart “The Intention Experiment”

Lynne McTaggart is an award-winning science journalist who studies human consciousness. Her latest book is a scientific detective story in which readers explore the furthest reaches of consciousness. A follow-up to her previous book, The Field, which explored an interconnected universe and scientific explanations for phenomena such as ESP and alternative medicine, her new book shows readers how to incorporate these things into their own lives. The book is connected to its website, in which readers can coordinate their involvement and track results as part of the experiment.

Black Angels NYC

In a stark contrast to last week’s Follow (What White Chicks Cherish), Black Angels NYC is a blog that celebrates successful and beautiful Black women in New York. At first glance it may look like simply a lot of pretty pictures, it goes deeper than that, with content ranging from quotes from Maya Angelou to an article about Willow Smith and her infectious hit song “Whip My Hair.” If this blog doesn’t make you love living in New York (or want to move here) I don’t know what will.
