CULTUS is the second instalment of the Silicon Traces trilogy, a series of moving image installations that contends with the beliefs, fantasies, and histories influential to Silicon Valley’s visions of the future. Spanning queer and speculative engagements with psychedelia, the nootropics industry, California futurism, network infrastructure, and political resistance, the trilogy surfaces the political unconscious of the tech industry.

Together with academics, artist Zach Blas and arebyte curator Rebecca Edwards unravel complex intersections of artifical intelligence, religion, feminism, ani-racism, and speculative thinking present in CULTUS.
