The Oracle @ Wifi book
$25.00 On sale
Loosely modeled on fortune telling, artist Beth Lilly created a performance project she titled “The Oracle @ Wifi”. Using her cell phone camera, Lilly created photographs on the spot for callers that purportedly had the power to answer their questions. Surprising and thought-provoking, the juxtaposition of text and images suggest answers that are clever, amusing and sometimes profound. This book features the most compelling results of her six-year experiment.
“The ingenuity of The Oracle @ Wifi resides in this turn of authorial power. The project comments on the dynamics of communication in the age of constant contact.” - J Piper Marshall, Art Papers, Jan/Feb 2007
