What would it be like if the rituals and practices of our everyday bank card transactions, were more significant? What if we could design for understanding, and have interactions that lead to a deeper understanding of our places in personal, national and global economies?

In The Hermetic Bank Card, we’ll consider how bank cards – of all types – could figure more positively and prominently in the fabric of our economic lives. We’ll explore how the form, function, identity and meaning of the card has been shaped over time, and imagine their magical potential, in a re-imagined economy?
