Oracle Bots at Control Shift Festival
The computational world is full of mystical references and similarities with magical traditions. In this workshop we’ll explore parallels between coding and casting a spell through making oracle-bots. Bots are small computer programmes that automate text on social media streams we so often find ourselves on. Oracle-bots operate as divination machines and provide spiritual advice. The workshop led by Annika Kappner and Danae Tapia will consist of coding sessions and guided meditations to explore the collective imagination around analogue and digital connectivity through the body.
