Tecnoxamanismo, Ficção e Ruidocracia na Casa Nuvem – 30/06 e 01/07 de 2015

Rede Tecnoxamanismo e Casa Nuvem convidam para uma jornada de ritual, ecosofia, geobiologia, artivismo, tecnologia “do it yourself” e conhecimentos ancestrofuturistas. Tudo feito em doses alquímicas nos laboratórios de gambiarras eletrônicas, tecnológicas, bicicletas de noise e antenagem para sintonizar frequências, energias e mistérios. Em um tempo em que a civilização humana mostra evidentes sinais de fracasso, novos meios de coexistência precisam ser incorporados.
