“This parrot will tell you the lucky color of your rashee [name sign], which will be beneficial for you,” an Indian fortuneteller explains his companion animal’s special gift and function as a medium.

In four iterations of an unchanging procedure, the bird hovers over a stack of colored cards in white envelopes and picks combinations of eight lucky colors. The medium is entrusted with determining the outcome and the resulting work: four large-format pigment prints are made based on the color combinations selected by the bird.
