Paranoid Technologies and Mythologies of Memory and Forgetting

Obscurantist researches paranoid technologies and contemporary mythologies of memory and forgetting, from hypertext and magick to UFOs and conspiracy theory, examined through the lens of alienation and anomie.

Our goal is to bring uncertainty and confusion to a field of study where false certainty and deceptive clarity have brought the world endless misery, working to soften the bright lines of ontological binaries with the gentle shade of epistemological play.

Some of this research is collected in the Obscurantist Mnemotechnical Archive , a ongoing compendium of references and notes regarding the history and mythology of paranoid technology.

Obscurantist also has a small collection of texts, focusing on historical artifacts with a particular mythopoetic or aesthetic merit.
