'Big Sacred Technologies' seeks to consecrate objects and technologies that predict the future (or futures). All the while encompassing the sacredness of the aesthetic, affect and use of contemporary surveillances within technological and cyber networks.

An oracle has come, it offers a line to the outside, its message is confusing and opaque. Like the stars, it offers multiple interpretations, a guide more than a deity, a profit more than an angel.
