Mount Wilson Observatory
Methods for Descrying, Intimate Eyes that Listen considers the space for intimate otherness in data interpretation.
Musing between astronomical stereoscopy and intuitive scrying, the installation brings attention to the way humans use their senses as a conduit for understanding information. Tuning into the environment for a more-than-human deep listening practice is a crucial aid for research methodologies that explore cosmologies.
An extension of the exhibition FEELERS, produced by SUPERCOLLIDER on the occasion of the 2022 Fulcrum Festival, thus installation will be located at the overlook at the south end of the main parking lot, near the entrance to Mt. Wilson Observatory.
About the Artist
Paige Emery‘s work bridges poetics and praxis, mysticism and theory, healing rituals and environmental science. This takes shape through art installations for intercommunication between humans and nonhumans, sound pieces for deep listening between the psychic and physical realms, and healing gardens for nonlinear time and regenerative metabolism. Her work often inhabits site-specific natural spaces such as the closed ecological system Biosphere 2 in Arizona and in guerilla gardens on sites of political unrest. Emery is also an embodied gardener and plant practitioner, currently working on a regenerative ecology project with a Regen Network grant and working on art and science intersections as a SUPERCOLLIDER SciArt Cohort. Her poetic rituals have been published by Ignota books.
