Within the video, a motion artist carrying a yellow fluid costume strikes her physique in rhythmic motions, opening the ‘Theoracle’ set up of Switzerland-based designer Ini Archibong. The set up includes mild, water, sound, crystal and glass and captures the essence of spirituality. The physique rhythm of the motion artist accentuates the irregular synchronisation of untraceable language – that which displays itself in a godly symphony. Contextually, Archibong considered the ‘Theoracle’ mild as a method of crafting an eccentric African fantasy and providing again to his ancestry as a diasporan little one.
