What is the meaning of myth and fiction as parallel narratives in times of constant confrontation with dystopian forecasts? What if we re-imagine those creatures from myth and bring them back to life? What can they tell us about the desires of the past and the relevance of unlearning existing knowledge to collectively imagine different future possibilities? How can we connect with the rivers we once knew. What can the river of stone tell us about its life or about the bodies of water that remember it?

Areej Huniti & Eliza Goldox's work focuses on collective imagining, as a practice to engage with the human condition within political and social systems. Through using new media technologies the artist duo builds spheres based on speculative futures and fictions. How can collective imagining be attained while collapsing narratives and geographies?
