In 2002 scientists found that by isolating the web-spinning gene fromspiders and injecting it into the DNA of goats they would produce asuper-strong silk-milk. They have been trying to work out how to farm spidersfor years as their webs are 5 times stronger than steel (relative to density),but had no luck because of the cannibalistic nature of spiders in large groups.They aim to produce bullet-proof vests with the silkmilk. But why should theMilitary have exclusive rights to such a brilliantly surreal concept?
Therefore we are hijacking the concept for aesthetic and magickalpurposes, producing our own luscious non-violent silkmilk ink; or perhaps reclaiming is a more appropriate term -after all, Metamorphic Ritual Theatre(a vessel of The Order of ChAOS on the outer -seehttp://www.crossroads.wild.net.au/morph.htm ) have been performing plays andrites about Pan and Arachne for years -this is their strange offspring...
SILKMILK MagiZen is a collective publishingvehicle of The Order of ChAOS and affiliates. A perfect-bound print journalwith an audio CD in the back cover, it presents artistic expressions in a rangeof mediums from musical and soundscape to drawing, poetryand essays, all with magickal intent and/or content. It aims to give thereader/viewer/listener an overview of the diversity of creative expressionavailable now and in the future from the IMPress.
The MagiZain is a vessel of the aeonic double current of Horus and Maat (thus its subtitle -Zain being the Hebrew letter of thesacred Twins), yet has equal emphasison the Sabbatic traditions and the Chaos 23 currents. It exemplifies Art(whether visual, written, aural...) as one of the purest magicks, being directcreative expression from the subconscious with minimal conscious intervention.
The first issue focuses on the liminal realms betwixt sleep anddreams, and how magickal Arts may interface the astral and physical realitiesby earthing the vision.
The first Issue of SILKMILK was Launched on the SAMHAIN (Southern Hemisphere) FULL MOON in Melbourne Australia and in London UK on Tuesday 3rd June '03, each with musickal and theatrickal performances by various contributors to the MagiZain and CD
