Abstract

Aleister Crowley and Charles Dawson: The Order of the Dawn Man is a theory-fiction narrative and series of fictioned collaborative collages/paintings “authored” by Aleister Crowley and Charles Dawson (creator of Piltdown Man) but realised or “fictioned” by Pendrell and Pollard. The collaborative collages/paintings the duo have produced imagine the Piltdown Man skull as a hyperstitional portal which activates a supersensible realm “unthought”. Significantly the text was written after the paintings were produced, allowing for the materials and process to guide the text into intuitive and unchartered new worlds.
