HEDGEWITCH PORTALS

installation at Equinox Studios

Story by Meghan Trainor December 15th, 2016

HEDGEWITCH PORTALS

In Hedgewitch Portals chalk, 100 pounds of moss, lichens and assorted other botanical specimens and string models of Einstein-Rosen bridges filled a space as a vast meditation on gravity, electromagnetism, bog ecosystems and sigil-making rituals. The moss/bog relationship points towards Sphagnan, Trainor's upcoming performance collaboration with Sarah Lypstk. Sphagnan explores bog rituals, Northwest history, living outside, the craftsmanship of conductive ink making, digital witchcraft, adventure, and transformation.

Hosted by Hazel Margaretes of Sideros Designs

A special shoutout to Amy Torkelsen Hanawalt & John Hanawalt for the photograph of Witch's Hair lichen & organizing the tender cultivation of 100 pounds of forest greenery.

Daily Moss Reports

The Daily Moss Reports were generated by all the folks who helped cultivate, care for and finally return the greenery to their final resting place in the hypothetical Bog of the Lyceum in Georgetown.
