oracle(s) is an emancipatory technology to free ourselves from the computational practices of measurement, categorization, extraction and optimisation. Instead oracle(s) institutes non-linear, collective unknowing practices centered in Black Feminist thinking. Inspired by the ongoing oracle praxis with Alexis Pauline Gumbs, we work with an anti-enlightenment understanding of learning: by which we mean that the idea of shedding light on things is not a primary way of knowing that we work with. We understand that resonance, non-linearity and association are powerful practices within oracle(s) that creates a “skeleton architecture” (Lorde) collectively training us for a world that is anti-capitalist, anti-colonial, full of tunings and cusps and towards anti-oppressive otherwises.
oracle(s) practices in the formats of workshops, poems and oracle technologies.
