Tuesday August 23rd, 7-9pm
Drawing on thematics from the Kathy Rae Huffman archive, the Cybernetic Mystics reading group begins an open exploration of the unorthodox spirituality of ‘cyberculture’ and its associated ideas, including technomancy, the technoccult and techgnosis.
The selected readings are intended as an introduction to this broad field for us to explore together.
Free. All welcome.
