In this workshop you will be introduced to the creation of a series of oracle-bots that can operate as divination machines and provide spiritual advice. The workshop will consist of coding sessions and guided meditations that explore the collective imagination around analogue and digital connectivity through the body, using energy grids as main motive.

Join this activity as a way to take control of digital technologies and their algorithm-mediated content! The workshop will bring new insights regarding the levels of agency we experiment in terms of individuality and (technical and supernatural) infrastructure.

You will learn:

  • How to easily create a bot in the Twitter or Mastodon platform (no coding experience required)
  • How you can use your own body as oracle and why is advantageous to know about the supernatural realm!

You will need:

  • space cleansing stuff (sage/incense)
  • an email to create a twitter or a mastodon account (or maybe we can ask them to have the tw or mastodon account ready to use?)
