My final project plays with the notions of tapping into Intelligence, developing Evolution, and observing Patterns. I wanted to use live elements in my play, and to give the projection an alchemical or ritualistic aesthetic. Materials I plan on using include - blood, ants, sugar, water, and egg yolks. The performance aspect will also touch on notions of Divination - the reading of signs/omens/answers/directions in blood, ants, egg yolks are all archaic and seemingly irrational (by modern scientific biases) practices that nonetheless give people an art/tech to understanding the world around them. The spot for this performance will be alongside other folks in the parking lot of 8th and Hennepin by AI, on May 13, Wednesday night. I like this space for being in the heart of the concrete jungle, and subsequently a good opportunity for playing with the idea of how Intelligence is perpetually breathing and enveloping our lives.
