Be Realistic: Demand the Impossible

ORACLE is an interactive artwork featuring a talking flame emanating from a burning tire. The burning tire functions as a climate change oracle that viewers can approach and ask their questions about environmental crises and the changes in the world around them. Taking a lesson from the river, and from the history of oracles as sites where uncertainty can be exchanged for action and direction, our piece offers a mysterious spectacle whose humor and strangeness are designed to upend cynicism and create space for voices from the climate justice movement.
