‘Fortune-Telling through Buildings’ is a fortune telling practice that was employed in ancient civilizations such as Assur, Babylon and Greece. Quoted from Xenocrates, the fortune-teller would interpret the general structure of the building including its columns, façade and the ornaments carved on it.  

Words Dash Against the Façade is a free adaptation/interpretation of this ancient practice on the façades of New York City buildings in the presence of a public audience together with Adam Kleinman and Defne Ayas.
