From Cardifférance by Carl Diehl
This week on the how Portland-based artist Carl Deihl. Carl’s work examines the intersections between folklore, the supernatural and communications technology. His projects take the form of video essays and pseudo-scientific lectures and invoke unexplained phenomena like Sasquatch and poltergeists to investigate the glitches, errors and unexpected aberrations of obsolete technology. These projects fall under a body of work called “Metaphortean Research” —- a term Carl coined to describe his process— and which he explains for us in our interview.
Carl spoke with me recently over the phone from portland about Metaphortean Research, circuit bending and a new project he’s working on that deals with a famous hoax involving a disgruntled atheists, a stone giant and P.T. Barnum.
