20-05-2019 - PLANET X-RAY – END OF ROAD FESTIVAL 2019
EXCITED TO WORK ON AN INSTALLATION FOR ‘THE END OF ROAD FESTIVAL 2019’ – AN XRAY MACHINE FROM ANOTHER WORLD IS TO BE MADE TO TRANSPORT MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC INTO THE SPIRITUAL WORLD OF EXTRA TERRESTRIAL BEINGS AND BEASTS.
The Institute for Animal Spirit Guides was developed for the Fling Festival and was very popular there for two years in a row. This time we would like to develop it further and incorporate making activities and a larger shadow screen. Both outings we were overwhelmed with the enthusiasm for the spirit guide test. What is interesting is that despite being obviously a spoof and a lighthearted artwork, participants cannot help but take aspects of it seriously. In the last installation participants were encouraged to ask their spirit guides a question. Often these were genuine questions about their lives. This makes touching and thought provoking interactions and interesting discussion amongst participants.
