Remoli­no de Suerte, swirl of luck, imag­ines a human-pow­ered tur­bine of rec­i­p­ro­cal bene­fac­tion, snaking tac­tile mag­ic through a crowd­ed field of open hands. Fin­gers grasp, palms enclose, detain momen­tar­i­ly and then release the objects, one by one, in a chain of col­lec­tive real­iza­tion. The task is to poten­tial­ize and dis­sem­i­nate objects of enchant­ment, the action an attes­ta­tion of com­mon devo­tion. One hun­dred objects are launched into the remoli­no; amulets and charms with inher­ent or assigned pow­er to pro­tect are set in motion towards a yet unknown future ben­e­fi­cia­ry, spread­ing good luck among the par­tic­i­pants and pub­lic along the way. At this frag­ile moment in time, the work calls for a coop­er­a­tive acti­va­tion of mutu­al care, rep­re­sent­ed in the cir­cu­la­tion and dis­tri­b­u­tion of tal­is­man­ic objects. Objects already pre-dis­posed as repos­i­to­ries of accu­mu­lat­ed ener­gy, from sources nat­ur­al or super­nat­ur­al, cul­tur­al or social, per­son­al or secret, gath­er charge with each new con­tact and change of hands. What occurs in the cir­cuit is a com­mu­nal­ly pro­pelled sym­bi­ot­ic acti­va­tion of the objects. The work hinges on the sym­met­ri­cal inter­ac­tion between the par­tic­i­pants and the objects them­selves as they simul­ta­ne­ous­ly affect each oth­er: the par­tic­i­pant col­lec­tive acts on each indi­vid­ual object, and the objects in total­i­ty act on each indi­vid­ual par­tic­i­pant. The par­tic­i­pants col­lab­o­rate in the process of prepar­ing and deliv­er­ing each object to the next stage in its des­tiny (a new rela­tion­ship of mutu­al cus­tody with an indi­vid­ual), just as they are receiv­ing the ben­e­fits of each object as it pass­es through their hands. When the objects exit the remoli­no, they are offered to any­one — any par­tic­i­pant or mem­ber of the pub­lic — who wish­es to keep one. When a per­son selects an object to keep, the assump­tion is that the attach­ment is mutu­al, as is the respon­si­bil­i­ty. The new cus­to­di­an of the object is entrust­ed with an object sat­u­rat­ed with past and present ener­gy, fresh­ly loaded with the ancient pur­pose of safe­keep­ing its safekeeper.
