Project Details

Cached Curses infects testsite with a psychic bubbling of worry, trash, cash and (so last century) hexes.

Originally inspired by an ad on Craigslist offering a free, haunted wolverine with the caveat that the new owner accept it "no questions asked", I started thinking, maybe there was some thing I could get rid of—some bitter toy stewing with bad vibes in the attic. Maybe this thing was the problem, and maybe I could pass on that thing to someone stronger.

So, buyer beware. I've scoured the closets, hard drives, pre-teen poetry, firefox history, and my best guess is 1993.

The entire year of 1993.

Coincidentally or not, 2010 was a recycled, identical calendar to 1993, and the opening of Cached Curses at testsite in January 2011 (also 1994) will mark the end of a year-long exorcism.

This project was made possible with generous support from the Netherlands Foundation for Visual Arts, Design and Architecture.
