Intentionality, Prophecy and Ancestry – Live Panel at Magical Cohabitations

18 March 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm CET

Intentionality, Prophecy and Ancestry
With Web Residents by Solitude
With contributions by Lark Alder aka Lark VCR and Sol Sarratea, Marie-Eve
Levasseur, Shirin Fahimi, Danae Tapia, and Nkhensani Mkhari, followed by a
30-minute talk moderated by Denise Helene Sumi (with Q&A via Signal)

The contribution Intentionality, Prophecy and Ancestry from the Digital Solitude program presents works from the last two Web Residency calls »Munu Maxims« and »Post Doom.« While »Muntu Maxims« intended to bring together different areas of spirituality from cultures all over the world, and suggest fresh ways of »relating to« things and one another ; »Post-Doom« asked to think of doom as a beginning rather than an end.

The presented projects all use applied-artistic digital practices and new media technologies – algorithms have been coded, 3D files and virtual online spaces have been generated – to offer connections with long-forgotten methods of prediction, various new and old rituals, and alternative methods for narration, prophecy, and knowledge-making. A bot system is used to generate cyclical autopoietic associative spaces with a divinatory character; a fictional character who represents female prophets can be animated; global users can share a digital »power object« or visit, in the virtual space, a moon altar or a speculative brewery to honor women who brew for their kin.
