The Obsidian Dreamworld
A prototype of an Ephemeral Sculpture
The Fertile Mystery of The Obsidian Dreamworld
Enter the mystery lands of the dreamtime, the shining darkness, the obsidian world.
Follow the crows from the ceremonial black hole to the bridge between realms.
Flying to meet you, butterflies from the fertile red lands carry messages of hope and transformation, of life begun anew.
Silent obsidian pools, energy collectors, portals to forever, shimmer in the dark
What world is this where midnight flowers bloom?
A crystal egg incubates in the black stone hills, new life and light birthing from the darkness.
Cross the bridge to a lushly blooming red world, fertile blood full of erotic passion.
Circle the sacred mound of fecundity high in the red forest.
This is the land of the fruitful womb.
They meet in the middle, fire and water, mystery and manifest, male and female, together.
Introducing the Ephemeral Sculptures
A contemplative art experience to bring a moment of joy and delight to your day, a sweet treat for your soul. Change your mood and lift your spirits with an immersive video journey into enchanted realms of beauty and mystery.
Offer the viewer a quick and delightful way to change their state at any time - an experience of peace, pleasure and beauty to be enjoyed over and over again.
Miniature worlds of enchantment built in a tabletop sand tray accompanied by a spoken word narrative, with original score and sound design
Sculptural collage composed from a unique variety of natural and man-made materials, evoking a richly textured feeling tone of vivid color, sensual luxury and archetypal imagery.
Of a moment, spontaneously created, never to be repeated. Once created and filmed, the sculpture is taken apart, the pieces returned to their baskets and bins, the sand swept clean. They no longer exist in solid physical form.
Contact Mikhaila Stettler for strategic partnerships, artist-brand collaborations, commissions and sales.
