The Oracle @ WiFi

20.00

Photographs and text by Beth Lilly

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, 01/07

"Dear Ms. Lilly, We are currently producing a series of short-form TV programs for Comcast's video-on-demand platform Paranormal TV. Our show is called Real Psychics...We feel you would be perfect for Paranormal TV!" - Nelly Shifman, Producer, Center City Film and Video, Email, 10/08
