2005 – current.        0RPHAN DRIFT PORTAL

0rphan Drift’s contemporary portal manifests in video projections, installations, texts and site specific projects. Carrying the signal into a moment organized much more thoroughly by time travel. Considering current narratives around climate change, bio- capital and related migratory patterns we re-imagine the urban as porous, interspecies and terraformed. We continue to work with moving images and ancient predictive technologies such as I-Ching to create non-linear narratives and installations.
