A Point in the Unknowable


     Extraordinary events since their last project, A Patient Transit, leave the family and staff of ICS/MYSTERYSEVEN in utter disarray and disorientation.  The abrupt and unforeseen passing of their newest and youngest member, J.M. Jr., thrust the crew and project into a seemingly sunless limbo.

     If A Patient Transit pushed the fledgling team towards reconfiguration and reorientation, the current circumstances sent the remaining members in a silent scramble for purpose, meaning, and motivation.

     The inimitable junior member infused the team with an unalloyed innocence of action and a joy of discovery - rare in these times.  Yet, as M.L. Navajo intimates, "Contrary to leaving a void in our lives, he has shown us a light to catch hold of and a crystalline purity to attain to.  For we that remain, the urgency of the search is increased tenfold".

     "A Point in the Unknowable is our initial re-search attempt, not at understanding nor comprehending, but at acceptance and surrender," agent MX7 writes.  "This work is not our lament, our personal blues;  instead, it is our coming to grips with the larger forces of design secretly at play; an awestruck and humbled ode to His mysterious ways."

     Digital copies available here; includes a digitized album poster designed by MYSTERYFORMS with threadwork collaboration from M.L. Navajo for the Ecclesiastical Society of San Joaquin and the ICS Arts, Crafts and Livelihood Program for Cultivated Living.

Prelude to a Showdown

"Tension mounting and temperature rising,
Looking Death square between the eyes;
Who will shoot first??"

     Embarking on a new ICS directive, we find Agent MX7 once again collaborating with the friendly neighboring camp of SEEKERSINTERNATIONAL.  Since their initial Manila Brukout convergence, the two factions have come together once more to further their experiments in bringing their studies to the people.

     As with all their past efforts, the project takes on a life of its own;  distinctly shaping itself into a study on the natural forces of resistance and opposition, coupled with their outward manifestations as conflict, struggle, and tension.

     Our kind ICS allies at Galaxaburn have graciously presented us with this lost footage, granting us an exclusive glimpse -and a friendly warning- about the impending approach.
