My Mother Was An Animal Until I Grew My Second Set of Teeth

A writing workshop and installation developed with Marie-Michelle Deschamps for her exhibition L*

Based on research inspired by the schizophrenic writer Louis Wolfson.  Selected participants performed a writing exercise in a trance-like state while, unbeknownst to them, a secondary group of participants, both present in the gallery and in remote locations, attempted to influence their writings through guided meditation.

the workshop included videos by PEAR Laboratories, Robert Sapolsky, and books by Julian Jaynes, Ngũgĩ wa Thiong’o and Victor Tausk
