We offer our clients a prediction in the future perfect tense: We view your present as material with a meaning that is inaccessible because only located in the future. You will meet fortune-telling experts who will remember your present from a position in the future, offering advice on important questions and aspects of your current life situation that have yet to be produced by your future. The meeting between expert and client will take place on a film set of a detective bureau, monitored by cameras. On this set, however, instead of looking for clues to crimes that have been committed or for proofs of innocence, symptoms of the present will be diagnosed by predictive treatment as traces of a future truth. These prognosis sessions will be recorded and shown at several viewing points.
Individual predictions in 15 minute one-on-one sessions on the fundamentally important topics: Activism, Expertism, Doing Nothing, Travel, Movement and Love.
