THE MAGICIAN : ARTIST IN RESIDENCE PROGRAM

THE MAGICIAN: BECOMING AWARE OF GENUINE BEING-DUTY

"Life is real only then, when "I am".”
― G.I. Gurdjieff

Observe the Magician’s gesture. The Magician’s hands act as a lightening rod - one arm extended up to the Divine for inspiration, the other pointing toward Earth to ground this potent energy and give it Earthly form - the Magician’s gesture indicates that s/he is a conduit for creative miracles. The second incarnation of The Golden Dome School will have a sound based emphasis and will seek to traverse limits for transmuting divine inspiration into frequency and matter. Through ritual, consecration, meditation, and movement exercises we will learn to utter The Magician’s words through our art:

“I, the Magician, take a position in the crossroads of eternity and infinity that we call the present. I am loyal to everything that I am: my body, my intelligence, my heart, my creative force.”

- Jodorowsky and Costa, “The Way of the Tarot”

We are interested in engaging selected artists in a co-creative environment of experimental pedagogy that fosters community, collaboration, feedback, close living, and the collapse of boundaries between life and art. This one week session will consist of workshops, collaborative art exercises, daily tarot meditations, hikes, and lectures offered by visiting artists. We will then create a group performance based on our findings that will debut in New York City. Please see the syllabus for detailed information. Visiting faculty includes Linda Montano, Frank Haines, Mollie McKinley, Zeljko McMullen, Eliza Swann, Irvin Morazan, and Brendan Landis.

Through an open call selection process,nine artists who are interested in becoming an Art Mage will be selected for participation in The Golden Dome experiment.

Applications can be found on our website at: golden-dome.org

The Golden Dome is an experimental, nomadic school dedicated to investigating intentional living and art making as it relates to cultivating ideas for sustaining and optimizing life on Earth. Each school session varies in theme while consistently centering around the study of the spiritual dimensions within the natural sciences and the expansion of these insights into physical art practice.

Our first program, "Performing the Fool's Planetary Rites", will take place at the end of July 2014 at a sustainable land art project in West Marin, CA. The program is dedicated to the study of the Tarot and it's relationship to performance. We will be enacting an initiation toward higher consciousness by performing the Fool's Journey through the Major Arcana.

The 'School For Performing the Fool's Planetary Rites' takes place on a sustainable land art project that consists of a long house, a cabin, a stage, an outdoor shower, and a compostable toilet. Our two-week session there consists of workshops, collaborative art exercises, visits to performance and meditation centers, hikes, and lectures offered by visiting artists, curators, witches, and tarot practitioners. The session will culminate in a group performance at the "First Friday" art event in Oakland, CA on August 1st.
