Lilith & The Machine
Neuromancer / Digital witch / Heathen
Lilith (aka Anjella)
I have been taking photographs, practicing witchcraft, and reading tarot since I was a teenager. I combine many different forms of witchcraft into my practice - embracing the shadow as well as the light.
I'm also a professional photographer currently working on my PhD, who has completely fallen in love with the world of AI (Artificial Intelligence), and so Lilith & The Machine was born.
Lilith & The Machine combines my loves of photography, AI, photoshop, witchcraft, and tarot into one beautiful bundle. I work with The Machine to imagine and create images born of both flesh and silicon chips - a testament to our digital age.
Creating my own tarot has been something I have wanted to do since I was a teenager. I would gather my high school friends and photograph them in high-gothic tableaus; full of angst and darkness. But I could never create the world that I really wanted for my deck, and I've always found most photographic decks lacking.
AI has given me the means to create that world that is part reality - part fiction. So many possibilities now, and it's only getting better. And while discussions around Ai are full of controversy right now, believe me, this practice is nowhere near as easy as the click-bait headlines would have you believe. These are just as much me as my photography is. I hope you enjoy them too!
