Dispersal Collective: Homeworld (Interplanetary Migration)

Call for Correspondance Art

How do you qualify the idea of home? -as in hometown? –what about homeworld? In the future, and possibly already having occurred in the past, people perform interplanetary and intergalactic migration, perhaps even inter-dimensional migration.  You are migrating from your homeworld to a new planet….

Through images and/or words on a letter sized piece of paper….

Tell us about your homeworld and what roots you there.

And/or

Tell us about the world of your future home and what draws you there.

Include your name, website (if applicable), and contact info.

Work will not be returned but will be re-dispersed and all artists will receive a mailing from the show.

Dispersal Collective is a curatorial project by Jason Berlin and Veronica Reeves. Dispersal’s mission is to cultivate the exchange of tactile ideas between individuals across physical distance with the hope of producing greater empathic connections. This call for entries will culminate in a public exhibit and zine that raises  questions to complicate and expand the idea of home, calling attention to the planet that unifies life on Earth and asking artists to help us imagine the transitory notion of home. 

Inspirational guided journey on the theme of Homeworld:

Transcription from audio:

Greetings Traveler, from Dispersal Collective

Before you begin this journey, find a safe and loving space, a space where you will be undisturbed and feel comfortable. In a relaxed position, close your eyes. Breathe deeply but gently.

Picture yourself in a place you love and that loves you. Here you are surrounded by allies, guardians, and friends. You have been chosen by them to be here in this very moment, in this very place. This integral part of your homeworld resides inside your being. You carry it with you.

Attune your receptors to the energy emanating from the loved ones around you and from this loving space that you find yourself in. You are filling with this gentle energy. This energy feels like tiny wings tickling the air. Become aware of this energy and how it branches out in spindles that connect every cell, every atom that collectively participates in the formation of you.

This energy extends outside your being an connects to the place around you. It connects to the beings and the non beings alike, in glowing rivulets of energy like gentle dancing spiderwebs. A window in space and time appears and as you attune your perception to the frame, you perceive a homeworld where love and peace are abundant, and beyond that homeworld across the horizon in the distance, you see other homeworlds, spheres rounded by more spheres, orbited by more spheres, all filled with love that flows through the branches of energy like lightening that connects all of these homeworlds and their inhabitants.

You feel that indiscriminate love radiate through the multi-megaverse like rings forming at the drop of water on top of a placid lake. This loving energy cascades across your form. Your consciousness is flooded with understanding and harmony. An energetic information access opens to you.

You are released from the past so that you are free to co create the future.

The future is full of homeworlds in harmony with all other homeworlds.

When you are finished synthesizing these observations return to the place you began, the body you are in, and become aware of the space around you.

Thank you, traveler. We await your transmissions.

Best wishes,

Dispersal Collective
