Oracles & Evacuations

Oracles and Evacuations is a combination of installation, projection, mysterium, psychological amulets, painting, drawing, an imaginary pop-up oracle shop/performance piece called Into The Forest*, and other curiosities.  The project deals with oracles, evacuations, trauma, and the roles of deception and imagination in healing.  What you see here are small elements from the large installation of the Oracles & Evacuations series.  (This page will be updated as more photographs are taken of the work.)

*This piece no longer exists. It was destroyed in an unfortunate jack-hammer incident, in which it was ground to a fine powder, leaving nothing behind but plaster dust and remnants of the bindings.
