Ixiptla 4 – Feathered Changes, Serpent Disappearances
by Mariana Castillo Deball
Can we read an archaeological site through chance operations? Probably a different idea of time would evolve from this methodology. Feathered Changes, Serpent Disappearances explores the tension between indeterminacy and narrative in archaeology and art. On one hand, there is an attempt to record traces from the past in order to build up a coherent picture. On the other, we have a more schizophrenic way of dealing with memory, acknowledging ghosts, double visions, and multiple versions of history.
