Fortune Teller

In the entrance hall of the nursing home, we placed a display case containing a statue of a fortune teller. Visitors observing the woman are unwittingly filmed. The recording is subsequently projected onto a screen together with a caption such as e.g. ‘Thresholds are safe but, unfortunately, one cannot stand on them forever’. These captions are added to the image by a computer that randomly selects them from a stock of one thousand.
