Change Encounters is designed to access an archive through a random number generator based on the 64 hexagrams of the I-Ching, the classic Chinese book of wisdom, which is considered both an oracle and a philosophy. The archive parallels this predictive system that is ever changing, where meaning is mutable and constructed by the viewer/user. The 64 web pages you are invited to enter cull together, through choice and chance procedures, an assortment of cultural and historical predictive devices, appropriations from popular culture, historical sources, academic scholarship, and personal interviews with people occupying diverse professional positions.

Change is an encounter with difference that requires opening oneself to the unknown. Similarly, to engage with this project is to enter a relationship with the unpredictable.
