“Scrying is another word for gazing into crystal balls, mirrors, still water, and other reflective surfaces. When you look into them, images will form and, if you practice, they’ll play like a movie and tell a story.”
Scrying Table investigates associative storytelling through images of inventing, remembering, and waiting. Amelia Garretson-Persans is especially interested in the storyteller as she operates inside and outside of the story simultaneously – at once its inventor and subject.
