Prediction, Performance, Participatory Futures

I designed a Guild and performative research body to bring together people who use prediction as part of their discipline. Collaborating with a renowned Psychic, a City Stock-Broker, a Local Resident and an Engineer, I documented their predictions for a new housing development in Deptford. Using rendered hoardings as a set, the  uncertain future of the development is in question when the public collectively enact the predictions into reality. Through these participatory processes of roleplay, rehearsal and speculation, the pre-enactment is a tool for understanding prediction and reclaiming contested futures.
