Or, Dark Fecundity, the Center for Afrofuturist Studies, Iowa City

During the residency at the Center for Afrofuturist Studies at Public Space One (Iowa City, Iowa, USA), Sonya Dyer / the … And Beyond Institute for Future Research further developed their ongoing project Hailing Frequencies Open (HFO).

At PS1, Dyer worked on developing prototype Space vessels inspired by the architecture of early Soviet Space vessels first used to send cells into Space, using tape to create zones within the gallery inspired by the Orthodox Jewish practice of Eruv and the ‘ready room’ used by Captains within Star Trek and other speculative Space travel narratives.

What happens when we recognise Dark Fecundity as a source of power?
