Talisman-Images: (Co-sponsored event)

Friday, March 29, 2019 - 6:00pm to 9:00pm

Practiced in medieval Islamic and European cultures, talismans were like apps that appealed to the planets and other powers to intercede into precise earthly problems. Laura U. Marks argues that talismans intervene in the order of the universe by re-folding it, a practice that relies on a conception of the universe as densely interconnected. In our seemingly disenchanted times, Marks suggests, it is still possible to re-fold the universe, grasping the points of disparate histories and places and drawing them together. We see this at work in movies, digital media works, and objects. Marks will focus on the effective results using such media to connect from the body to the cosmos.
