Portfolio > Dowsing for Woo

A collaborative project with Lisa Myers during Food Water Life, a thematic residency with Lucy + Jorge Orta at The Banff Centre.

woo
v. wooed, woo·ing, woos v.tr.
1. To seek the affection of (someone, especially a woman) with the intent to marry or begin a romantic relationship.

Artists, staff and faculty artists were invited to a potluck dinner on Valentine's Day at Tunnel Mountain Lodge at The Banff Centre. Each guest was asked to make a dish to with the 'power to woo'. An edition of 30 prints was created with a scale to determine the "amount of woo" in each dish. At the dinner, I performed the role of the diviner, taking a sample of each dish and placing it on a own print. I ‘dowsed’ each sample to determine its ‘power to woo’. Each print was stamped where the dowsing rod landed, signed by the artists and given to the person who cooked the dish.
