Ixiptla IV – Feathered Changes, Serpent Disappearances is a journal about trajectories of anthropology initiated by Mexican artist Mariana Castillo Deball. The publication takes the form of a highly visual magazine with essays by anthropologists, archaeologists, artists, and writers, including Ursula K. LeGuin, John Cage, Robert H. Barlow, and Matthew Robb.

The publication explores the tension between indeterminacy and narrative within archaeology and art. Can we read an archeological site through chance operations? A different idea of time would likely evolve from this methodology. On one hand, there is an attempt to record traces from the past in order to build up a coherent picture. On the other hand, we have a more schizophrenic way of dealing with memory, acknowledging ghosts, double visions, and multiple versions of history.
