Following the dual threads of science and spirituality, Stéphanie Solinas’s trilogy The Dazzled Blind delves into the materiality and intangibility of identity. Following the first two parts of the series based in Iceland and Italy, Becoming Oneself, the third installment, explores the western United States from Sedona to Silicon Valley, drawing parallels between the physical landscape and its abstract philosophical territory of ideas. Solinas uses photography as well as film, audio recordings, and spirit readings to delve into the belief systems that compose a current moment of “Coastal Californian Futurism.” Insightful with a dose of humor, her interactive installation invites guests to discover her intersecting research on New Age spiritualism, transhumanism, engineering, and computer science.

Solinas developed Becoming Oneself as a Headlands Artist in Residence in 2018; the Project Space installation debuts the project.

Stéphanie Solinas’s residency is supported in part by Cultural Services of the French Embassy in the United States
