Tiger Birth: Origins of Sea Free

Join us for our summer immersive exhibit Tiger Birth: Origins of Sea Free, featuring artefacts inspired by one of the creation stories of their universe. Artefacts are works of art created by people from our universe, inspired by their connection to Sea Free, and the messages and lessons they receive through that connection.

The exhibit features a collection of books, images, and video created by Sea Free receivers exploring questions at the heart of the Tiger Birth origin story:

Who do you become when your multiple identities snap into place?
What is it like to birth your self – in all your contradictions, glories, failures, and beauty?
Who/what/how would you be if you didn’t have to choose your identity from the ends of binaries?

You’re invited to explore these questions for yourself by visiting this interactive, multimedia, and multidimensional exhibit.
