Knows too much is a workshop and collective digital spell to reframe the human-device connection. For the exhibition Fremdkörper, in the temple of sleep designed by Boogaerdt/VanderShoot, participants interrogated their own smartphones as modern soothsayers, unveiling the subconscious symbols that --very much like dreams-- inhabit their digital realities. As a closing ritual a magic circle, casted through digital objects relating to the four elements, served to create a collective spell. Participants scanned their own smartphone with herbs, printing a materialization of their own algorithmic life. The printed pages were then buried inside a vase created from a discarded computer. Flowers are currently growing from this vase. Performing this communal “psychic surgery”, the workshop aim was to work with the ineffable language of magic and produce a set of tools to be used for cyber interpretation and protection.
