The Sacred Antinous
Sir Richard Wadd
The Delphic Oracle
Updated January 31, 2016

I'm a Toronto-based artist working in a wide array of new, old, and ancient media. I think of myself as a "Webspinner" -- the Internet is my primary substrate, and upon it I place my various works of trans-media art.  The creation process is ongoing; there's no definitive beginning or end to the large-scale structure of the networked storytelling. 

My vision is for a hyperlinked web of timelines, images, and texts that serve as a metaphorical portrait of my evolving identity. As such, it becomes a resource of personal narratives that can be mined as a tool for self-analysis and self-knowledge. I periodically review my past deployments in search of meaningful (or mysterious) patterns of mind and consciousness.  These alternating seasons of creation and reflection allow for self-directed exploration, therapy, and, every once in a while, exorcism.

The various cyber-regions of my storytelling practice are presented below, and are in a perpetual state of evolution.
