This workshop is part of the Innisfree Workshop Series, hosted and conceived in collaboration with Jennifer Loren, east window, and collective.aporia. It is part of a larger project on the theme of disgust. More information can be found at the following link: https://eastwindow.org/disgust
ABOUT THIS WORKSHOP
The theme of disgust (or dvesha from the yogic perspective), the ways it manifests within individuals and the collective, and its ultimate transmutation and subversion will be examined and explored utilizing techniques of:
- Cut up, collage, and mixed media to deconstruct/reconstruct text(s) + image(s) + perceptions
- Divinatory poetic techniques to uncover the hidden messages + works that lie dormant within source materials
Elements of self-inquiry and shadow work form the foundation of this deep dive into writing into, disassembling, and reassembling the things that revolt and repel us, urging us to think outside of the boxes of limiting beliefs that hold us hostage both personally and creatively. This process allows us to identify, acknowledge, re-imagine, and integrate our perception of the dark and vulnerable corners of ourselves in a fun, playful, and hands-on way.
