We Are All Astonishingly Wise is an interactive fortune-telling video installation from artist Katy B Plummer, hidden just off George Street.
Your card, drawn for you from a deck of 48 by the ‘ghost’, a friendly fuzzy spirit from the future, forms a unique reading of your fortune.
“When order crumbles, everything can be an oracle; courting transrational understandings of our experience can help us in our quest to undermine the toxic foundations of the old world.” - Katy B Plummer
The oracle can be left hanging as a riddle, to be intuitively understood and applied your own experience. Or, you can scan the QR code to get a more detailed reading.
You are invited to safely visit Abercrombie Lane for the true oracle experience.
