Joshua Madara

Electric Wizard

Joshua Madara is a digital and electronic occultist* and magician-computer interaction designer living in Seattle, Washington. His interests include the intersection of art, magic, and technology; magical objects and materia (and media) magica; ritual as interaction and experience design; semiotics of magic and ritual; Sørensen’s cognitive theory of magic; sorcery, necromancy, and witchcraft from antiquity to the modern period; alchemy; psionics and radionics; cybernetics; robotics; new media art; maker culture; and describing himself in the third person.

* Which just means I do much the same sort of thing as digital or electronic artists, but for primarily reasons of magic and occultism rather than aesthetic ones. However, for many social or practical purposes artist is a suitable label, and indeed magic has a long history of association with art and craft.
