Feeding Speculation: Annual Predictive Texts

Feeding Speculation is a publication recently released by Tim Belknap and Ryan McCartney, the directors of the Icebox Project Space. At the start of 2015, the Icebox Project Space approached several friends with a simple idea: share a meal with someone, and over the course of conversation arrive at a prediction for the coming week, year, decade or more. A number of people participated, sitting down to dinner with friends, significant others, and family members, whether over a homecooked meal or out at a restaurant. The gamut of ideas that arose from these conversations ranged from predictions for the next day to far into the future, from projections for one’s own life to musings on the fate of the entire world. These predictions were then put into this publication, Feeding Speculation: Annual Predictive Texts, which was released at the Second Thursday of February 2015.
