How to turn ordinary lives into an attractive spectacle, a spectacular show? The auteur duo succeeds in doing so in a somewhat eccentric piece created for the human body and a computer. Forecasting is an entertaining and daring game in which the performer completes a varied and bizarre mosaic of amateur YouTube videos.
