Meghan Elizabeth Trainhor: Witancraeftlic

January 1, 2019

Meghan Elizabeth Trainhor’s mixed media installations and artworks blend witchcraft and technology, blurring distinctions between magic and science. Witancraeftlic inhabits a fever dream in which the use of electricity in folk healing predated the Age of Enlightenment and led to the burning of witches—a place where the first witch bottles were Leyden jars, sigils were expressed as circuits and magical familiars became mechanized. The artworks act as historical and contemporary artifacts of a hidden witchcraft, referencing bog rituals, the Apollo Space Mission and computational language.
