Tabitha Nikolai: Mutatis Mutandis
Mutatis Mutandis is a space of divination, through beautification, situated in a virtual rendition of the temple of Delphi. Glamour allows a glimpse of a possible self—a new way of appearing that prefigures a new way of being. Manifesting this change requires adherence to the prophecy of the beauty regimen. Once necessary changes have been made (Mutatis Mutandis), the insights can flow and the prophecy can actualize.
The medium is in the massage parlor. Welcome to the Adyton nail salon.
