Ravirer A digital garden about disrupting status quo


Hello, my name is Ariane Beaudin (they/she). I’m a writer, tarot practitioner and glitch artist based in Tiohti:áke, in so-called Canada. My work is anchored in the ethics of care and in anticapitalist praxis. I also like to think of myself of some kind of organic intellectual.

In the past, I’ve studied liberal arts, international relations and laws and computer science. Now I’m in a mix of cultural and political studies.

Deep down, I just want to run away and open a farm though. The more cool and official version of that is that I will co-create an eco-village with my friends.

My fields of interest include, but are not limited to, urban agriculture, magical realism, critical studies of psychology, community building and (non-monogamous) love.

I am trying to become known on the internet namely via two alter egos of mine.
The first being The Glitch Witch, who is the persona through whom I am creating a body of glitch art, where I am experimenting namely about propaganda, queerness and sex magick. The second being L’Oracle du Shlag, with whom I am offering divination service to help navigating (and eroding) this capitalist hellscape.

I used to be quite active in the climate activist movement (2019-2020), namely in the organization of student strikes. Right now, I am somewhat politically homeless but I’m trying to do my part here and there, learning my revolutionary history slowly but surely meanwhile.

Oh, and also, I miss coding and all that jazz. I am a Neo4J nerd, if you are ever looking for a real weird Neo4J nerd. I’ve got nothing to show to prove of that nerdy-ness though. And also again, I can correct and edit stuff in French, please hire me, I love to do that kind of stuff.

You can always reach out to me by email at [email protected] or with a DM on Instagram.

And I’ll leave you on this wannabe portfolio of mine. Au plaisir!
