Current > Phantasmagoria

Phantasmagoria explores the intersection of art and psychic processes. Motivated by a long-standing interest in occult practices, this work investigates the activities of 19th and 20th century Spiritualist camps and the quest to see the immaterial through the perspective of contemporary art production. From the standpoint of absurdity, this body of work explores belief, proof, fraud, illusion, and the smoke-like substance of the ethereal body called ectoplasm.
