Siilatujuk Christopher Gorman

“There is a state of mind called Siilatujuk. I find this hard to describe because it happens to me. It is that state of mind that allows me to see a different world which is my very own place. Here, I am not subject to unnatural forces. Here, I can create things that are beautiful and that give me great pleasure. It is a very strange place because you know that it can never be, yet when you leave it and come back to the world we know, you discover that you have created a beautiful thing that you have brought back with you. I am a carver, so I bring forth carvings—but there are songs, stories, and magical things that have been brought back by others from their own worlds.” -Inuksuit: Silent Messengers of the Arctic
