A Setting for Rituals Involving Indigo

with Craft Mystery Cult (Sonja Dahl, Jovencio de la Paz)

2012

The Craft Mystery Cult, composed of Sonja Dahl, Jovencio de la Paz,
and Stacy Jo Scott, is a collective effort born from our desire for
haptic making. Craft making is based in a body that remains fallible but
linked to our primary human knowledge. As an unknowable and unspeakable
knowledge, it remains a mystery. Craft skill is our link to this
mystery.

We are projecting an alternative space, a mystery school where craft
is envisioned to actually have the capacity to create a temporary,
perhaps absurd utopia. Ours is an absurd linked not to irony and satire
but to an optimism that remains in the face of futility. Craft Mystery
Cult’s goal is not to dispense a knowledge that only a few have access
to, but to remind each body of its own agency. The insertion of such
practices into contemporary dialogues which favor the fetishization of a
supposed post-apocalyptic condition, creates a location where sincerity
rubs up against sarcasm, repetitive labor against gestures of bravado. -
Craft Mystery Cult, 2012.
