Art of the Day: Tuesday July 08, 2014

Sweat Lodge

- by Aylan N. Couchie

This week's theme: The Bazzar: A Day at the Souk

This week's Art of the Day reminds me of a bazaar. There are so many different things to see and you can't be sure what you'll find.


Art: Sweat Lodge by Artist Aylan N. Couchie
This installation piece references traditional native healing ceremonies and crosses it with today's sterile, cold institutional healing centres. The lodge is made using all non-natural components.  The lights are reflected off of a speaker mounted with mirrors in the "steam pit" portion of the rocks. The speaker plays drumming through an ipod. The lights vibrate within the sweat lodge to the beat of the drumming.
