Please join the Organism for Poetic Research for our first event of the Spring 2021 semester! You can RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org for the Zoom link.
The OPR will be virtually hosting artist Emmy Bright (Cranbrook Academy of Art) for a tarot-esque workshop on reading images for ourselves and others, and, as Emmy writes, using your intuition to “upend normative good sense in order to find something more complex, gnarly, and real.” Drawing from her recently published book and accompanying deck of images, MORE STUPIDS, Emmy will discuss how she came to her own tarot-esque genre, and how you can use the deck—or any deck—to create your own spreads for readings. Following a brief demonstration of how we can read images, cards, meaning, and each other, Emmy will guide participants in small groups to practice reading cards for one another. The workshop encourages play, intimacy, and failure. For this workshop, Emmy will supply digital versions of her cards for you to randomly “pull.”
If you would like to work with a physical copy of the deck (not required), you can order your copy of MORE STUPIDS in advance of the workshop via 3 Hole Press's bookshop or your local bookstore. The workshop will take place on Zoom, and is free and open to the public.
