Weird Shift

an isolation tank that wasn't, a nameless vault that won't be in the distance. a certain Victor Turner's home life (i.e. noisiness) after me (which isn't)

Located in North Portland, Weird Shift is an alternative atelier, an off-center for paralogical inquiries, artifacts, and ideas. A place where the aggregation of cultural arcana, speculative theories and the pursuit of sideline knowledge areas is encouraged. The Weird Shift Storefront offers visitors a Research Commons, library, coffee and computer workstations where the accumulating archives of the Weird Shift enterprise can be perused and performed upon. Along with these permanent fixtures, there will be a variety of events, workshops, exhibitions and lectures taking place throughout the summer months.

The conference that was, the storefront that will soon be, the liminoid text before you which is.
