Digital Collage
The Celebrity Tarot Deck is conceived as a translation of Aleister
Crowleys infamous Thoth Tarot into an ephemeral and superficial world
of paparazzi and celebrity phenomena.

All 78 cards of the traditional deck, including their ancient and deep-rooted symbols, star signs and planets, have been systematically translated into a contemporary celebrity context.

Through a simple, yet precise divination ritual, each selected
celebrity "chose" their respective character/position in the new deck.
Online gossip imagery, -an infinite source of inspiration and
production, has been digitally altered and re-composed.

The resulting collages exhibit novel ways of interpretations and divinations. Each celebrity transcends into a world of ancient symbols and signs weaving their highly superficial and clich├ęd public image
into the multi-layered web of traditional meanings. Every card and its according divination represent the artists' own reflections and interpretations of the public celebrity image.
Boxed Set:
78 cards and booklet. Card size 10x15cm.
Each card is also a unique, handcrafted Lightbox. 70 x 100 cm.
