Reorient is about...
Reorient is about mylar. It is the mirror, the double, the twin. It camouflages, sucks in, spits out, distorts. It presents a gateway to another world. Mylar makes a lovely evening gown. Silver body paint is nice too.
Reorient is about popping. Flashing. It's synaptical. Operating on the thresholds of perception.
Reorient is about big video. It is immersive and dimensional. It is something you enter. The silhouette is critical to the video at Reorient. That is the participant's way of projecting themselves into a simulated world.
Reorient is about breaking down. When is something something? It's about pattern recognition. Reorient is particular. It's about lots of little things flying around in a big world, it's about underlying structures and rules. It is a game.
Reorient is about comfort. It's about making a place for people to sit/lie.
Reorient is a vehicle. It takes you places.
Reorient is about domes. Its about shelter and communion.
Reorient is about chaos. Its about opposites and flip sides. Its multiple perspectives at once.
