Welcome, I am the Medicine Woman

I co-created an installation for Dusklit: the East Coast's annual one-night interactive art festival. Here’s a photo essay. Before I dish all the details. The process began on the peak of my *favorite* mountain, harvesting one jar-full of blueberries and huckleberries.

The sign up sheet was full. I was squeezing people between time slots. The concept was developed by me and Fon Borrello. The installation happened within a 10x10 octagon tent I designed and constructed. Truth seekers were invited in, one by one, to talk purpose, ancestors and guidance. Plus, oracle readings! Using the Fourfold Oracle Deck (by me and Fon, coming early 2019). Participants were provided with a one-card reading, “a word from your angels,” this card indicated a number 1 to 4 which indicated which a medicinal drink and a soundtrack followed. There were 4 different experiences available to tap into ~ all based on the participants choice of card.

This project was crafted in reflection of shamanistic journeys, where one goes on an unknown journey to know thyself. This process evoked the healing, magical and playful elements of ritual. But the true value is in discipline and prayer.

I'm a teacher. I'm a student. This is it!
