Alchemical Objects and Oracular Vessels

An evolving installation of photographs, film, and sculptures on the thematic of the oracular and protective qualities transferred to objects by individuals faced with uncertainty, this ongoing work begins with a reference to Homer’s Odyssey and the alchemy of seasilk and manifests through a series of unique hybrid pieces referencing apotropaic amulets and predictive tools. It is ensemble of photographs, documents,  sculptures, and film.
