The Mandragora Project
February 1998 – The Mandragora Project – A Project designed by Joe Griffith of the Experimental Skeleton.
The MANDRAGORA Project has been a continuing practice for the last five years. It is an investigation into the myths and scientific history of the narcotic mandrake root. It is also a further exploration into how meaning is projected onto objects and the collapse of possibilities. The root, which resembles a little human figure, is multiplied and dispersed to remote places: fields, woods, back lots, and roadsides where they may be stumbled upon. The multiples are, however, designed to disappear.
