The Anthro-Cephalopodic Amalgamation Retreat
Exhibited as part of Gut Feelings, Open School East building, Margate, 7th - 9th December 2018

Explore interspecies connection and non-human sentience through the tools of mind transformation and bodily reconfiguration. This guided meditation dives into the depths of the mind and the ocean by narrating your transformation from human to octopus. It should be a private experience whether in the soothing underwater room of the Institute or within the comforts of your own home.

Materials: Audio, ink-dyed fabric, sea water and seaweed-infused scent, carpet, underwater lighting, hand-sown cushions, aquarium plants, bowl of water, ornamental rocks.

TRY IT AT HOME!
