The clay will tell me what to do next
The clay will tell me what to do next is a participatory ceramic project that explores the connection between material, immaterial service, and embodiment. Drawing from imagery in Kabbalah and Peter Sloterdijk’s spherology, the project uses the metaphor of functional ware to consider self-orientation and service. The title is taken from a phrase often used by potters to describe the process of collaborating with clay on the potter’s wheel. The exhibition will begin with raw materials and will build itself throughout the evening by audience participation.
