The Gaze

This is a project I am undertaking which involves researching the history and use of crystallmancy and speculation by scientist, mathematician and occultist John Dee. By reviewing documents and artefacts from the British Museum and Wellcome collection I am investigating the way in which John Dee used crystals to predict the future and the parallels between this and the current state of machine learning and predictive algorithms that use data to make assumptions and predict the future.
