Description

Myth has been used throughout history as a tool of interpretation and understanding, a gathering of shared experiences, such as historical or religious events, nature and natural phenomena. Often spoken through personification creating behavioral models and as a moral compass.

Vague understandings of emerging technological concepts and how they work, create fertile soil for the conception of myths.

The Oracle’s Query is an exploration of our modern day technology with the tool kit of mythology, it offers an interpretation into the vast and ever changing landscape of technology.

The Cloud becomes a metaphysical data-center in the heavens, meme cats and self-aware robots roam the countryside, where the sky is darken by flocks of drones who loom over vast data-mines, and in the dark corners of the AI’s imagination, the creatures of the Deep Dream emerge.

The tapestry depicts a modern-day technological cosmology, a logical medium for the interwoven history of the computer and the Jacquard loom, both were programmed with binary systems through/via punch-cards. Ada Lovelace predicted that these new machines (computers) could be used for “other things besides number”, referring to music, art and poetry drawing parallels between the pattern making looms and the computers

About the designer


Curated by

New Solid is a vision to feel and live with art. It is the first show of Casa Nueva, a livable gallery space and apartment hotel initiated by designers River Valadez and Sebastián Arroyo Hoebens, built on the idea that art can be inhabited. We invite visitors to participate in the dialogue among transdisciplinary works from the contemporary art and design scene. It concerns functional art designed and conceived by artists from two magnificent cities, Mexico City and New York, in a correlation founded in geometry, technology, and crafts. The artworks, bliss for the contemplative eye and a joy to use, will invite the beholder to examine the floating and multidimensional character of concepts such as mass, volume, or weight. The location, equipped as a functional living space, can be found in the historical center of Mexico City. The event will be part of the Design Week Mexico festivities in partnership with Adorno, acting as the international design and logistics platform, as well as Ángulo Cero, an Art Gallery with astonishing designs located in Mexico City, and with the support of Yunuen Sariego, promoter and curator of contemporary art based in Mexico City.
