Wild Alchemy Lab is a new independent transdisciplinary journal created by the experimental botanical studio Mama Xanadu.
It can be considered as a vehicle with which to explore our relationship, now in crisis, with nature and with the cosmos through both a scientific and esoteric lens. Starting from the axiom that all universal phenomena are related to each other, the magazine focuses equally on plants, planets and people.
Alchemy is the arcane art of transformation, the physical and psycho-spiritual practice of elevating the basic elements of our experience to a noble state. At the heart of alchemical philosophy is the death process: death generates life. To evolve beyond the crisis, obsolete systems are dissolved to be reconstituted in a new and better way.
ISSUE 2- FIRE
Each issue of Wild Alchemy will explore one of the five elements: earth, air, fire, water and ether. These are considered the fundamental forces that provide the basis from which to investigate how we place ourselves in our environment through the three perspective physical-material, mental-emotional and spiritual-energetic planes.
The second issue is dedicated to FIRE: ignited by the transformative power of the mythical Phoenix, we have collected over 40 contributions of art, text, sounds and smells in 72 pages and five continents by artists and academics, musicians and producers, scientists and researchers, therapists and practitioners of the occult, brutes and writers.
