The Pyramid Oracle, 2016. Baltimore based, Brazilian-born artist Victor FM Torres will be exploring limits of the mystical, the technological and the foreign in his upcoming Pyramid Oracle, 2016, an intermedia installation commissioned for Fields Festival, later this summer. Participants will be compelled to enter a bright pyramidal structure where an internal computer and sensorial system will allow the installation to be fully interactive. Bridging recent technological achievements with the ancient practice of divination the pyramid's internal computer will associate a participant with entities of an obscure pantheon and deliver a presentation. In Pyramid Oracle, 2016, as well as in most of Torres' oeuvre, the participant will assume the role of an "exotic" alien who has just recently arrived and must discover their way through the unfamiliar. The piece expands on precisely what makes something obscure, what separates the foreign from the familiar, the immigrant from the native. The Pyramid Oracle, 2016
