How to Read a Spread with The Pendant Tarot Deck (2021)

Film, 12 min.


Method: The Muddy Ocean. The original tarot deck from The Pendant (2020) becomes a portal. The eight cards perform for the gaze of the one posing the questions. But they have their own demands from the one pulling the cards, forcing them to navigate between the narratives of symbols, the ruthless muddy ocean and their own deepest reflections.
