future friend/ships is made from oracles and drones and childish dances.
future friend/ships casts a different kind of futurism: if it is impossible to project ourselves in a near immediate future because of war and misery, we can always imagine a fictional future.
We are amateur oracles and oracle-making machines. We call upon fragments of raging poetry, broken machines, dying animals, and plastic flowers. We use arab future fiction and punk anxiety as excuses and models. We celebrate, among others, the poetry of Etel Adnan, Nazik al Malaika and Donna Haraway. The more we generate potential for transformation, the more we will be surprised by the future. Otherness hosts otherness.
