‘Predicting’ is a 3 minute video with sound. When installed, the video is accompanied by a printed handout containing the referenced script.
The handout can be accessed here: emmahelenreid.files.wordpress.com/2019/02/emma-helen-reid_predicting_2016_handout.pdf
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.
This work was produced for the ‘Archives and Historical Resources’ Postgraduate Elective short course at the Glasgow School of Art taught by Debi Banerjee.
