Otherly Engagements

Thumbnail

An iterative series of tipis built to evoke particular dreams and wishes in the participants.  Loosely based on the lecture of William Burroughs in his class on The Technology and Ethic of Wishing, the pieces employ a form of psychosomatic magick: the use of symbolism and technology to elicit the sense of the auratic and sacred.

Each iteration of Otherly Engagements is site-specific, a heterotopia that simultaneously interacts with, transforms, and divides the spaces they occupy.  As the iterations progress, the designs will become increasingly coded with symbolism, but one that is self-referential, evoking previous incarnations and meanings.
