As a translation of her augmented reality work "Coffee Ground Imaginaries" into real space, Anna Ehrenstein designed five different demitasse cups with golden inscriptions. They prophesise not so much individual as collective wishes for the future of our life in the community.

Ibn arabi said all of the cosmos
is alive. A new beginning arose,
quantum theory and
algorithmic tech bros agreed
(see picture above)

I see a future where freedom
of movement is not only for
commodities and white ppl
and does not stop in the


I see a cosmology coming
where we see gender and
passports as much
as constructs as magic and
chose the latter


I see an imaginary choir of
infinite potentiality singing
truth to power and taxes
to transnational corporations


I see a cosmology coming where
commodity activism and protest
through consumption
does not make your jihad
