What is Technomancy?

Technomancy or Technomagic is a combination of technology and magick.

Technomagic is a new paradigm where the lenses through which we experience the world become more adjustable than ever.

When practising technomagic we don’t create ‘content’ but rather, we create ‘context’.

Technomagic provides us with new abilities, control over our senses and the ability to develop new forms of perception, allowing for a new type of self and societal exploration. During this talk we will explore some of the key examples, application areas and practitioners.
