Fortune Tasker

About

Fortune Tasker is an interactive installation by Nadine Lessio and Alanna Predko using an Amazon Alexa, reclaimed deer skull, and a tiny printer. Alexa is usually positioned as a general use interface seeking to become part of our everyday narrative. Fortune Tasker subverts that by changing the Alexa to no longer be your personal assistant, but a personal mystic. A magical object rather than a spy.
