Thunder, Arousing, a spell that offers the potential to re-awaken the life force, kindles their dormant hope; that which was thought lost. Through mutual sensitivity an inner sureness may emerge that exists besides the vital storm.
A magic bead placed in a pocket, a joint awakening, differentiated for each participant, spell enacted.
Each bead consists of paper, nettles, rose petals, sounds and breath. Giving attention to the process of choosing a bead might fire the magic.
The 51st hexagram of I Ching (Book of Changes), an ancient Chinese divination manual and book of wisdom, influenced the making of this spell.
The first iteration of the work was shown as part of the Embedded exhibition at Enys Gardens, Penryn, Cornwall, July 2014.
