Ultra Uranian

Via Phantasmaphile

“HEXEN 2.0 specifically investigates the participants of the seminal Macy Conferences (1946-1953), whose primary goal was to set the foundations for a general science of the workings of the human mind. The project simultaneously looks at diverse philosophical, literary and political responses to advances in technology including the claims of Anarcho-Primitivism and Post Leftism, Theodore Kaczynski/The Unabomber, Technogaianism and Transhumanism, and traces precursory ideas such as those of Thoreau, Warren, Heidegger and Adorno in relation to visions of utopic and dystopic futures from science-fiction literature and film.

Based on actual events, people, histories and scientific projections of the future, and consisting of alchemical diagrams, a Tarot deck, photo-text works, a video and a website, HEXEN 2.0 offers a space where one may use the works as a tool to envision possible alternative futures.

HEXEN 2.0 is the sequel to HEXEN 2039 which imagined new technologies for psychological warfare through investigating links between the occult and the military in relation to histories of witchcraft, the US film industry, British Intelligence agencies, Soviet brainwashing and behaviour control experiments of the U.S. Army.”

This just looks SO stunning & original that i feel my blood fizzing up just reading this…this is pretty much my vision of the most awesome art installation ever.   Suzanne Treister is a total Uranian – wish i had her birth deets. Here is her c.v

  1. Oh. My. Goddess.
    The Tarot alone will keep me absorbed for aeons. This is just delicious, mucho gracias Mystic!

  2. Not a uranian comment, but I have decided to celebrate NEptune into Pisces in my 8th house by buying myself a beautiful set of Tarot cards that I have been looking at for ages, a little expensive but I just love the imagery.

    • I bought tarot to celebrate Neptune into Pisces too!! But it’s moving into my ninth house :)

      • I’ve been thinking of making my own actually. Neptune in Pisces is opposite my virgo venus now.

        • oh, now that would be a nice idea catfishy. That was me being anonymous up there btw (cookie cleanout :) )

          • what deck did you get. The couple I had years ago I never connected with. Now I have non tarot decks that I pull cards from. I have the Druid Animal Oracle and the Susan Boulet Goddess Deck and her Animal Deck. I use the Boulet decks the most.

            • will let you know once i can get hold of it! it appears to have sold out (was a one-off production run apparently) xx

    • Heh heh heh I’m actually thinking of giving most of my decks away. LOL.

      Am working on producing my own set of the Sabian Oracle, but am stuck between the little version and the “Go Big Or Go Home” version. And also between the visual cue and the words. Cos the words would be easier to do on one level – and more accurate on another.


  3. What a creeative intelligenttsia genius this lady is ! I am so inspired by just a quick look at her work… Thanks for bringing to our attention Mystic !

    She is incredible and utterly inspires ! Her work is worth a deep and long look into for sure…I’ve never seen anything like this…Some awesome combo of intellectual genius and creativity…She must eat knowledge for breakfast and what an incredible out put of stunning work. There’s so much interesting Uranian ‘atmosphere’ going on in her work…which does not nearly describe how interesting it is…I’m gobsmacked !

    Just a quick look at her site, reading her tarot cards, is like a full education in everything you could ever want to know about so much that’s amazing…

      • Can you imagine what a crazy/ funky place the world would be if we all had functional alter egos that were this individual ? And the corporation namings are spectacularly clever.
        This woman must be truly living her brain potential

        • Sounds so wonderful i cannot imagine….but was thinking, imagine if you had like several alter egos or something, that lived out the most functional ways of creative potential in your chart…Gee,the people, places and projects one could create…

          This lady is exceptional tho, her talent, intellect and productivity is so admirable, it’s interesting how she’s had the influence of genius Kristeva too…

  4. Thank you – and what a great birthday gift. I’m turning 30 today (Feb 9th) and the Moon is also in Virgo – so I’m having a solar AND lunar return!! How often does that happen? Happy AquaMeg day and hope everyone has fun experiencing my chart for the day ;)

  5. a friend sent me a link to this tarot’s website yesterday, and my first thought was that I should send this to Mystic, and then I found she had just posted about it…
    I love this deck, and want to get it, though I do have quite a few tarot decks already :)

  6. I see these cards as a storyboard for an amazing animated feature film. Mystic can produce it.

    PS: In spirit of all things Uranian, made a minor discovery – flax seed oil is brilliant for root canal probs (well, at least for pain relief).. This resulted from trying about 50 (drug free) things out of sheer desperation – i.e. was in agony with major headache as well. Within minutes of rubbing the oil over the gums the pain reduced significantly.

    Next – how to help your teeth grow back to health and live free of gum disease and cavities … without a dentist. It can happen. Might involve a Tesla device (to zap all the crap in of the mouth cavity) and a whole new diet of plasma charged organic foods.
