Projection experiment by Joe Kelly, Hibernation 2019

Archive from 2019

The first Hibernation Project was a 12-week domestic intervention occurring every weekend from January – March 2019. Themes were developed by instigators Caitlind & Wayne, and proposed to participants as a means of stimulating thoughts and experiments. Participants were charged with interpreting each theme, and self-determining the amount of time and energy to invest, with the understanding that pressure would be low, audiences were intimate, and resources were in-kind only. The resulting works were generous and provocative, a reflection of each participant’s personal direction, interests, and practice.
