Oracle 

49 digital images, printed 4” x 6”, 2014.

 

Oracles have been a means to foretell the future throughout human history. By creating her own oracle, the artist becomes the oracle and art becomes the voice of the Divine.

 

Oracle is a series of 49 cards inspired on words collected by the artist to construct the image/identity she chooses to reflect to the world. Going beyond identity as national identification, gender, class or other means of labeling humans, she seeks to create identity through a direct connection to the human soul. Each word-image was constructed with ideas that the artist relates to the specific word for the card, using Google as her own oracle, and transforming the images to create a visual composition in an automatic, sub-conscious process.
