11½ Spells for our Future Selves is a series of strategies, investigations and performance gestures that speculate on the future and operates at the intersection of technology and nature—between human and non-human beings. It is a return to my own Southern gothic Appalachian roots of storytelling, dark humor and witchy methods. Part-strategy, part-embodied performance investigation, I use science and magick, the techno-spiritual, within interspecies environments. I incorporate, cannibalize, conjure: fact and fiction, seeking out visible and invisible networks and systems—human, non-human, digital, psychic, biochemical, synthetic, artificial, authentic. I embrace this in-betweenness as a place for possibility and deviance—what’s next, after what’s next?
