The process begins
something in the distance behind
Limited entities desiring wholeness
something looks broken
Not everyone present is visible
not everyone visible is present
Voluntary acts of sacrifice
something that has a purpose

Multiple remote coordinates
slipping on time’s shiny skin
Activating the body mother
a burning desire
An interlocking multi-being

Antiphonic Multi-Being presents a reflection on the cumulative constitution of collective personhood through creative practice and ‘altered states’ – states that are formed through ongoing shifts between diagrammatic (ordered) and anti-diagrammatic (disordered) psychic conditions. Bringing together anthropologist collaborator Julia Sauma’s research into collective personhood in the Amazon with ideas around co-authorship and collectivity in molecular art practices, Antiphonic Multi-Being investigates these through video and performance; reciprocal participant observation (in anthropology / art practice); the use of collective sigils (magic diagrams of intent) and interpersonal psychic phenomena of Ganzfeld technique and remote viewing – both forms of gathering knowledge through extrasensory perception.

Half-Sun Gift was part of “Gravity Waves and The Spirit World” a Spirit of Gravity curated radio programme.
The term cult identifies a pattern of ritual behavior in connection with specific objects, within a framework of spatial and temporal coordinates. Rituals would include (but not necessarily be limited to) prayer, sacrifice, votive offerings, competitions, processions and construction of monuments. Some degree of recurrence in place and repetition over time of ritual action is necessary for a cult to be enacted, to be practiced.
– Carla Antonaccio, Contesting the Past: Hero Cult, Tomb Cult, and Epic in Early Greece
AAS Molecular Cults are heterogeneous assemblages of possible elements that are performed as improvisations. These elements may be substances (fluids, powders, etc), processes, sounds, materials, or structures. The performances are improvised but not chaotic or random, in the manner of a series of interrelated processual refrains within a defined space and/or timeframe. The temporality for Molecular Cults is multiple, with loops and whorls of elements being sequenced and resequenced so that past, present and future begin to explicitly interact. This is in contrast with the more linear temporality of the Diagram Performances although there is, inevitably some cross-over.
