Oracle bots at Hackers and Designers

Visual artist Annika Kappner and technologist Danae Valentina from The Digital Witchcraft Institute, will lead a hands-on workshop to create oracle bots. This is going to be a holistic experience of technology and spirituality in which participants will be introduced to topics such as the politics of magic, cyborg intelligence and posthuman automated knowledge. They will also take part on guided meditations that will connect with the practical activity of creating an oracle bot using easy generative grammars and archetypal references from different supernatural traditions.

This is a necessary exercise to promote modes of automated digital creation that differ from machines whose aim is to promote neoliberal logics. With our universe of oracle bots, we are proposing the development of a type of art that will create kinship between humans, machines and the unknown.
