Skry-Pod, 2009

The Sheraton Centre Toronto Hotel, Waterfall Garden

Derived from an Old English word, skry is a method for clairvoyance achieved by gazing into reflective, flickering objects such as water, candle flames, and crystal balls. Skry-Pod transformed the Sheraton's lobby and normally inaccessible gardens into a zone of divinatory encounters. Tarot readings performed with traditional decks and an iTouch application specially developed for the performance, a live tableaux in the glassed-in waterfall, and a VJ mix of the artists' aesthetic meditations on popular culture, natural cycles and occult philosophy continued through the night. For the artists, a "positive economy" is created through a combination of paranormal and environmental activism: prosperity is gained by enhancing the personal freedom and well-being of others.
