Fortune by Zach Gage

Originally conceived and built as a physical installation piece back in 2013, Fortune is the latest in Zach Gage's series of twitter bots that started in 2009 with Best Day Ever, and the first to live in a context outside of twitter. Fortune a new kind of Fortune Teller — one that auto-generates fortunes based of content from twitter.

When it's not exhibiting, I keep it hooked up in my living-room, and every day I wake up and get my fortune. When they are funny or meaningful I post them to twitter, I even did a series of them on vine for a bit. Because of this process I've developed quite an attachment to the machine.
