2010: SUSPENSION OF DISBELIEF, Ingrid Hora and Daniel Salomon

Summer Research Residents

Objects have a tremendous importance in our lives. They are not only useful; they mean something to us. Sometimes we are sentimentally attached to them. Sometimes they can trigger physical attraction. Objects carry stories and in order for them to “work” we need to believe in them. Therefore we decided to design a new cult based on the worship of objects. We produced shrines, icons, altars, merchandise and technological and interactive machines, which were needed to accomplish peculiar rituals.
