Acknowledgement of Country

Sandpit respectfully works across the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung peoples of the Eastern Kulin Nations, as well as the Kaurna and Yugambeh peoples. We recognise and respect their continued cultural, spiritual and technological practices.

We also extend this to all First Nations peoples across the land known as Australia and pay respects to their Ancestors and Elders past and present.

As the very first storytellers and technologists, First Nations peoples possess invaluable knowledge and perspectives that are crucial to the work that we do across both the physical and digital realms.

The Oracle

Harnessing the power of artificial intelligence (AI) to give you the chance to experience the ancient Greek ritual of visiting an Oracle.

Sandpit built a sculptural installation for the Hellenic Museum that invites visitors to ask a question of ‘The Oracle’, a contemporary interpretation of ancient Greece’s Pythia.

Using a web-app, visitors can submit their queries and watch in real time as the Oracle answers. Powered by OpenAI’s infamous ChatGPT, we trained the Oracle to speak in a dramatic and at times catastrophic tone of voice peppering her responses with references to ancient Greek culture.

The Oracle of Delphi was the high priestess of the temple of Apollo, otherwise known as the Pythia. People would travel from far and wide to have an audience and ask her for guidance while she channelled the voice of Apollo to provide the answers they sought.

Our 21st century Oracle is powered by AI so that you can take part in the time honoured tradition of asking what your future holds.
