Fortune Teller (Prototype 01)

In Turkey, there is a widespread habit of fortune-telling and extensive use of astrology. My work originated from the desire of destabilizing these beliefs and habits. I have created a patch that is able to generate speculative planets on its own. ‘Fortune Teller’ implements the planetary motion of astronomical bodies, including that of asteroids, comets, planets and stars. When physical bodies attract each other, relationships are instantly conveyed through the yellow lines that represent gravitational forces between planets. The strokes vary relative to planetary mass. Depending on the way the planets interact, lines may be frozen with mouse X. The screen will be filled with lines as soon as the mouse is pressed. This project is still under development.
