A chthonic – emerging from the earth – procedure. Demonstrated are overlaps between reality and unreality. Whereby the meaning, for one, lies in overlapping and, for the other, in undermining the usual structures and opinions. A makeshift aid to revive memory, one that happily links socio-cultural aspects with individual needs – HOME VOODOO.
