Modern technologies too can be considered in relation to other traditions than that of western science. For example, the Ifa oracle of the Yoruba is a binary calculus used for divination and can be read as an ancient form of the binary code. Rezaire further invokes the example of comparing digital networks with the natural ‘Wood Wide Web’ of plants and mycologies (fungi systems). In her colourful video collage, Rezaire combines digital Pop aesthetics, African ornamentation, mathematical formulae, elements drawn from non-western traditional cosmologies, and images of herself and others in pursuit of the decolonisation or ‘healing’ of science, philosophy and technologies.
Tabita Rezaire is infinity incarnated into an agent of healing, who uses art as a mean to unfold the soul. Her cross-dimensional practices envision network sciences – organic, electronic and spiritual – as healing technologies to serve the shift towards heart consciousness. Navigating digital, corporeal and ancestral memory as sites of struggles, she digs into scientific imaginaries to tackle the pervasive matrix of coloniality and the protocols of energetic misalignments that affect the songs of our body-mind-spirits. Inspired by quantum and cosmic mechanics, Tabita’s work is rooted in time-spaces where technology and spirituality intersect as fertile ground to nourish visions of connection and emancipation. Through screen interfaces and collective offerings, her digital healing and energy streams remind us to see, feel, think, intuit, download, know and trust beyond western authority but towards the soul.
