This multimedia installation and two-month performance by Allison Warden, an Iñupiaq interdisciplinary artist based in Anchorage, takes the form of an Iñupiaq ceremonial qargi. Warden's version is a futuristic recreation of a ceremonial house, where she allows her audience to gently explore what these spaces might have felt like, but in a contemporary context. Warden describes the ceremonial space as existing "in the space of where the hyper-future meets the superancient, a liminal space where myths are born and the Eagle Mother is honored with ceremony and dance."
