Future Teller is a public art video sculpture with more than 100,000 pedestrians and motorists viewers daily.

As a premonition enters a fortune telling grandmother’s head, a world of mystical colors and visions opens up, taking us floating into space to view earth from afar, as it heats up and explodes. The 1930’s machine is a reference to naysayers of climate change, who have likened climate scientists and their predictions to fortune tellers. Fantastical and somewhat humorous, this piece also gives voice to the frustration of the average citizen facing the global enormity of the causes of climate change.
