In "il·lu·mi·na·tion", The PORTAL Collective invites the viewer to step into a highly immersive site-specific installation. Using interactive projections and audio recordings, Shantell Jackson, Roin Morigeau, and Asia Porter have rendered their individual pen + ink work into imagined digital topographies. It is largely taken for granted how entrenched white hetero-patriarchy has become in our day-to-day lives. From the clothes we wear, the sidewalks we walk down, to the very buildings we inhabit. PORTAL’s "il·lu·mi·na·tion" answers the question, “What else?”. Wielding poetry, visual art, digital design, and contemporary storytelling methods as tools, we are not dismantling the master's house, we are building a home of our own.
PORTAL is the antidote to creative isolation.
"Il·lu·mi·na·tion" is the threshold.
