I tried to make everything on this patreon free but quickly realized that the amount of downloads was huge and the amount of feedback was miniature.  I don't know if that means Russian homeopathathic robots are starting to hand out some bad medicine or what...  We hope you are comfortable with this new arrangement, you are helping to support a unique artistic and therapeutic enterprise. No more than $1.07 needs to be contributed for full access to content.   But we really hope this will incentivize you to post comments and give feedback or commentary to the posts. Thank you!

About

Oliver and Allison will spend the next year artistically rendering the healing process after Oliver's stem cell transplant and ongoing cancer therapies. We look forward to generously sharing sculptural and software experiences as a series of hallucinations, rituals, and metaphors. This will include virtual reality guided meditations and embodied explorations, which reflect a transformation in our relationship to technology and inner life. Both abstract and concrete, we enthusiastically chose this way to communicate our creative and intellectual insights. A few topics to anticipate: regrowing your whole digestive tract (relating poetically to infants' learning to control their somatic self, and subsequent compartmentalization of digestion to a "lower" function), or how cutting your finger nails encourages honesty and forgiveness - the past as material legacy digested and discarded. We hope you find meaning in this work, as we already have. Thank you for your support and sharing this exploratory process!
