Tituba was a figure of metamorphosis. She has travelled across time, space, ideology, ethnicity, religion and belief. Since standing trial at Salem in 1692 she has shapeshifted into countless fictive and historical reincarnations and has been credited with various forms of magical agency from fortune telling to voodoo.

She has been resynthesised - into a new and distinct bio-synthetic entity. We are on the cusp of a new era of scientific possibility that force into question the folds between the human and the inorganic, mindfulness and matter, the empirical and the sacred. x
