How are we complicit in the institutional violence that our technologies reproduce? As we engage in the struggle for epistemic delinking, we remember that our responsibility, as in response-ability, our ability to respond to a situation, is the seed of our liberation.
Beyond the frenetic drive for growth motivated by profit and the insatiable thirst of capitalism are other worlds. Worlds we dream, worlds we draw, worlds we sing. Worlds where visions are real, where flowers speak, and water heals.
Tabita Rezaire is infinity incarnated into an agent of healing, who uses art as a means to unfold the soul. Her cross-dimensional practices envision network sciences - organic, electronic and spiritual - as healing technologies to serve the shift towards heart consciousness. Navigating digital, corporeal and ancestral memory as sites of struggles, she digs into scientific imaginaries to tackle the pervasive matrix of coloniality and the protocols of energetic misalignments that affect the songs of our body-mind-spirits. Inspired by quantum and cosmic mechanics, Tabita’s work is rooted in time-spaces where technology and spirituality intersect as fertile ground to nourish visions of connection and emancipation. Through screen interfaces and collective offerings, she reminds us to access our inner data centers and bypass western authority to download directly from soul.
