The Cataclysm

 

We didn't know. How could we? When we set out to harness exotic matter from around the world we were like children playing with fire. That fire is still burning, deep through the earth's core...beyond, actually, into other dimensions, other times, other places.

What will you see?

The infinity node "Hollow Ground" discovered in the deserts of Southern California.

 

lim·i·nal
ˈlimənl/
adjective technical

  1. relating to a transitional or initial stage of a process.

  2. occupying a position at, or on both sides of, a boundary or threshold.

A liminal space is the time between the 'what was' and the 'next.' It is a place of transition, waiting, and not knowing. Liminal space is where all transformation takes place, if we learn to wait and let it form us.

 

con·tin·u·um
kənˈtinyo͞oəm/
noun; plural nouncontinua

  1. a continuous sequence in which adjacent elements are not perceptibly different from each other, although the extremes are quite distinct.

In the space-time continuum, events are defined in terms of four dimensions: three of space, and one of time, with one coordinate for each dimension; we continuously "move" along the time dimension.

Connecting through collaboration and shared experience.

This year's global experience will come in several forms: 

  1. Create a tandem art piece of your choosing in your home town.
  2. Send in musical samples and verses for our "Voices of Ingress" music video.
  3. Create and mail origami hearts to be placed inside the middle of our tesseract.
  4. Create mission murals.

Archetype Respresentations
Our installation is multi-faceted and could be interpreted as one of the following archetype themes: 

  • Omniscient - know the unknowable
  • Visionary - see what was/is/could be
  • Catalyst - power to transform
  • Interpreter - eye of the beholder
  • Spiritualist - glimpse the beyond
  • Alchemist - manifestation of reality

Art Installation

 

In 2017, we envisioned a Magnus so heavily influenced by Humanist-induced exotic matter that we neglected to anticipate what would happen to the XM once our project was complete. The answer: it never left.

Unbeknownst to us, the XM concentration continued to build at Navarro, causing a cataclysmic warping of space/time, bringing eight interdimensional nodes to life. These infinity platforms activate scrying devices, allowing one to see through time and space. Do you have the courage and stamina to look into the infinite and absorb visions from the folded universe? 

 

Liminal Continuum Art Installation Details

15 ft - 20 ft tesseract in the middle, rotating on a mechanical arm.

Eight "infinity platforms" will surround the tesseract. Each will measure about 3 ft x 3 ft x infinity.

  • Lighting may depend on portal conditions

  • Will include infinite glyph sequences

Eight "scrying stations" will be located at the infinity platforms at waist- and eye-level.

  • Each will be interactive and have a way to see into the past, present, or future. 
  • One will be musically interactive.

Eight resonators keyed to the portal status.

  • Made from laser-cut acrylic

 Latest rendering of the entire art model - there will be 8 individual scrying devices that you interact with only if you stand on/in/through an infinity platform. Some see into the past, others the present or future. And some...the beyond.

JOIN US

Experience the Magic

 

Part campground, part anomalous zone. Part artistry, part engineering. And all fun. As a team we will bunk in adirondacks and teepees, pitch a tent, park a trailer, or simply sleep under the stars. We would love for you to join our team onsite. 

We piloted the global collaborative in 2017 with wild success. In keeping with that tradition our team has created four different ways you can contribute to and experience this fun event from your hometown.
