“Nod” is the Hebrew root of the verb “to wander” and is intended to explain the nomadic lifestyle of Cain and his descendants, the Cainites.

When Cain killed his brother Abel, he was marked by God and exiled to Nod, the “Land of Wanderers”. Cain was a farmer and was forbidden from settling in one place and toiling the land, but sent away to wander the land forever. God put an identifying mark on Cain as a warning to others not to harm him in any way.

This exhibit explores the psychological experience of those who are marked to be live as restless nomads upon the earth.

The exhibit questions, to carry the mark of Cain, are you cursed to a life of banishment or are you set free?
