Art and the Esoteric



Technoetic Film Rites by Lila Moore consists of astral projections and double consciousness born of scrying in the cyber-ether, and commuting via mini wormholes in the dark matter of consciousness. It unfolds the oracle of moon_files, a daimon dancer seeking technological manifestations and hybrid love.


The visual filmic narrative arises from women’s dark and silent, ancient and remote presence. It represents a radical aesthetic stance, social and cultural resistance to types of oppression we are so accustomed to that we hardly recognise them. The piece is informed by Maya Deren’s ritualistic form in film and art and inspired by Moina Mathers’ scrying and astral projection techniques.


Mediums & aesthetics: screen-dance, art film, networked-rites, cyber-performance.


The presentation is part of Conjuring Creativity @ Fylkingen in Stockholm, 23rd October, 2022.


The event is curated and produced by Geraldine Hudson with Dr. Christian Giudice.


In this presentation, Lila Moore talks about her body of works and the intersection of art and esoteric, magickal practice.
