Hey Sirius is based on ancient oracles that often made mysterious statements about the future. It resembles textile murals and sounds like a modern language assistant. Activated by the physical presence of the questioner, it provides abstract answers to concrete decision-making questions of all kinds, e.g. “Hey Sirius, is it a good idea to buy the postmodern tapestry via teleshopping?”
The work was created in the context of the project “Fiber Fabric Fiction”.
