Closed Loop / Scrying Mirror (with Maurice Wald)2022, video installation, 2-channel video, stereo sound

installation view, 2022, Ars Electronica, Linz

Closed Loop / Scrying Mirror explores themes of algorithmic and divinatory prediction, simulation, and magical conceptions of technology. Gesturing towards colonial, market-driven, and technocratic notions of prediction, it references the scrying mirror, a divination artifact originating in pre-columbian Mesoamerica, later adopted by European astrologers like John Dee, and the practice of augury, where the augur divines the future by observing patterns in (in this case simulated) bird behavior.
