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.

Want to know more? To celebrate the new laneway artwork commissions, the City of Sydney is offering free City Art guided walking tours of public art, led by local artists.

Katy B Plummer will lead tours throughout February, discussing her new laneway artwork and significant public artworks in the city centre.

This is part of the City of Sydney's temporary laneway art program.
