Takes place during Uroboros Festival 2021

The participants will join the artist Isabel Beavers to launch an ongoing, feral, and experimental public art project “Nocturne”. During this two hour workshop participants will design their own wild altars to engage in new eco-rituals. Beavers will share her process for site-selection, altar design, and temporal engagement. Workshop participants will contribute to a global network of wild altars, generating worldwide practices for momentary eco-spiritual gestures. Participants may also generate point cloud models of their altars using photogrammetry and contribute to a virtual archive of wild altars, commemorating the more-than-human species we collaborate with. Following this project launch, the network of wild altars become an experiment in collective care-taking.

Nocturne is a series of wild altars meant to be experienced at dusk, dawn, or at night. It is a network of mycorrhizal collaborations with more-than-human ecosystems that offer opportunities for generating new eco-rituals. Rooted in intimate experiences with the elements, landscape, seascape, and more-than-human species, each site calls upon a specific and ephemeral moment of sensory collaboration: times when the sun, light, sound, and scent coalesce through the senses of the human body to produce sublime or ordinary but intimate moments.
