woodiana.today is a speculative online fabulation service DTAFA developed in collaboration with the Museum of Science and Technology Belgrade and a local freshwater mussel of the species Sinanodonta Woodiana. Woodiana is an invasive oracle who travelled all the way from China and settled in the Danube in order to speculate with us about possible Danubian futures based on anticipated emergencies the Danube might face. Using her hard skills as a bioindicator species paired with a dash of artificial intelligence and some good old gut feeling woodiana prefers imaginary fabulations to meticulous predictions.
Visit woodiana.today and ask the oracle yourself!
WOODIANA WAS NOT AMUSED TO BE TAKEN OUT OF HER DANUBIAN TERRITORY, STILL VISITORS WERE ALLOWED TO OBSERVE HER BEHAVIOUR.
