Here are some images I created for a group show curated last summer by the amazing Jo Cook. The show took place at Lucky’s Gallery in Vancouver. These images document the many divination techniques I used in virtual space in efforts to make contact with the dead. The video piece below, “neila ni” was also a part of this show.
The work from the show has been published in an artist’s book – here is the description from the publisher’s page at Perro Verlag – Books by Artists
