Hotspot
Hotspot is a contemporary sweat-lodge ceremony designed to create a wireless network using the collective energy of its participants. Hotspot is presented by The Sisters of the Lattice, willfully conjoined techno-mystics who work to deepen the connection between individuals and the technological devices they use everyday. They perform a range of ceremonies with participants using computers, cameras, cellular phones, and online platforms that both indulge and question the mediated experience in our lives.

The Hotspot ceremony centers around a screening of the Sisters' feature-length film Link, a journey that explores the simultaneous intimacy and separation created by modern telepresence. From truck stops to salt flats, lush forests to casinos, the Sisters performed with a diverse spectrum of people while constructing this video myth. From hundreds of interactions with strangers, 5 selected individuals were "linked" to one another using an energy transference conducted over a conference call. The video tells the story of these 5 "links," resulting in a sensorial experience that is part documentary travelogue, part psychedelic incantation.

Sauna space is limited to 10 participants per Hotspot. Upon arrival, you will check your belongings at the check-in desk, and have the opportunity to get changed and situated in your sauna. We recommend that you wear warm outer wear as well as a bathing suit or any garment that you are comfortable wearing into the steam sauna. We will provide towels and slippers but you are also welcome to bring your own. Be sure to arrive well-hydrated. If your plans change at any point, please let us know immediately so we can release your reservation for others to fill. Additional spectators are welcome to attend the screening in gallery seating on Saturday, March 8 at 2PM.

All ceremonies are held at SPACE Gallery, 538 Congress St, Portland. Sauna participants please arrive 30 mins before the ceremony begins; At 10 mins before the ceremony we may release your sauna to someone on the waitlist.
