In “The fortune cookies I order with Glovo are oddly accurate” I had 40 cookies containing a set of messages that I had written to tell the public their fortunes. These brief statements investigate how surveillance capitalism has infiltrated our relationships and emotions, making them profitable. Digital cookies owe their name to fortune cookies and, although they were disregarded at first, they later turned into the founding brick of what we now call surveillaince capitalism. In so doing, they fullfilled their etymological prophecy becoming a tool that can be used to predict one’s needs and wants, that is their future.
When the performance's over, the Glovo box is placed again in the yellow circle and the public can pic the fortune cookies.
