Andrea Zittel is prensenting A-Z West Works pop-up at Sadie Coles HQ Gallery. The shop features a selection of works generated from A-Z West, the artist’s compound that serves as her home and testing grounds for living prototypes, and by High Desert Test Sites (HDTS), an arts nonprofit that promotes experimental exchanges in the High Desert.
Quartz is by far the most versatile and multidimensional stone in the mineral realm. Three of its key properties are energy amplification, programmability and memory. Sitting in mediation with a piece of Quartz, one can visualize and image of one’s intention or desired outcome within the crystal, and this will have the effect of powerful psychic amplification. After such a session, or especially if one practices the same programming repeatedly with the same crystal, numerous inner and outer events will seem to conspire synchronistically to bring about the manifestation of one’s wish. Quartz is also a stone of Light, bringing heightened spiritual awareness to whoever wears, carries or meditates with it. Sleeping with Quartz can enhance the vividness of dreams and holding a clear quartz will often deepen ones’ experience of meditation.
