social magic / by Stephanie Beattie

I'm looking at human magic. Social magic. The relationships between people, the power they have as embodied in but not defined by the people in them.


Coercion & cohesion & cooperation


group identity, group intention, group formation


i'm making videos & installations about being with other people in long term cooperative relationships, whatever kind of cooperation it is, productive or destructive.


Groups as "hyper-individuals"
