Stakhanov, the oracle created by Oriana Persico and Salvatore Iaconesi, is a continuous feed printer that uses Big Data to predict people’s futures.

In the cosmogony invented by the two artists, the great Web stacks – Facebook, Apple, Microsoft, Google, Amazon – are gods that use the information left behind by users to understand who we are, transforming us into a representation of ourselves, an Imago. Stakhanov collects these Imagos and looks for recurring themes or patterns that it changes into Prophecies, forecasting our future based on the information that we ourselves have chosen to leave behind on the Web.
