Working with the Promethean Complex

September 17 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm PDT

Virtual Event Virtual Event

In this workshop we will dig deep into the myth of Prometheus to better understand how our increasing focus on progress and technology has led to our chaotic world. Using stories and images we will explore ways to work with and through our Promethean complex. The Promethean complex leads to rich creativity, but also catastrophic destruction. As such, it is imperative we consciously engage with this complex to learn how trickery, thievery, and hubris influence us. We also consider how technology affects our daily lives and the psychological debt we accrue due to our increasing involvement with technology. Finally, we will explore the mythic motif of the superhero in its varied modern forms and how this motif influences our personal and collective lives.
