In this era of hyperconnectivity, the perverse implications of the sounding boxes of the media are increasingly plain to see. Society is divided into bubbles cut off from each other, while the few general themes widely amplified monopolise most of our available attention. This insularity has a powerful impact on the ways we think, resulting in ever more homogeneous imaginaries. The Predictive Art Bot is an automatic antidote that uses key words drawn from the news in real time to stimulate associations of intemperate, counterintuitive, prophetic or disconcerting ideas. Every prediction becomes a thought experiment waiting to be incubated, badly used or appropriated by a human host.
