Cori Cannavino is a visual and performing artist working in research creation and new media ritual. Her work is informed by Dora Kalff's research in the development of Sandspiel, or Sand Play, a Jungian methodology utilizing sand, water, and living archetypes; represented by figurines and miniatures. Kalff argues that materials and their chosen arrangements are imbued with psychic matter, a belief inherent to ritual tradition. Cori recently completed research in Naples, Italy on precipios, or cribs, experimental Nativity scenes which archive the figures and customs of the Neapolitan cultural imagination.
