Offline Oracle Ouija board

Computers & Mobile Craft & Design

Andrew Salomone made this “Offline Oracle” take on a Ouija board. He made it as an “internet substitute” art piece. He writes:

The point of this piece is that access to information clearly does not make us smarter, if we are unable to figure out how to apply the information we have to some useful purpose, the internet itself is a perfect illustration of that. Every piece of useful information on the internet is also fodder for our own illogical arguments and opinions so in some cases it seems to me that a Ouija Board is just as acurate as the internet is at backing-up whatever it is that we want to believe in.

I think my subconscious is more in tune with the QWERTY keyboard layout than alphabetical order, and I love the giant cursor.
