VIDEO PROJECTION WITH PRINTED HANDOUT (3min, colour, sound)
‘Predicting’ is a 3 minute video with sound, accompanied by a printed handout containing the referenced script.
In this work I juxtapose videos and quotes about the use of Google Search with those about the fortune-telling practice of palmistry, something which is generally seen as implausible, in an attempt to provoke other ways of thinking about this seemingly routine contemporary encounter.
