Money. No other artist tackled this dominant topic as directly as Ellie Harrison in 2011, whose A Brief History of Privatisation summed up decades of government outsourcing in a neat video installation.

5 Predictions for the Future
By Ellie Harrison

1. we’ll feel the force of the dreaded ‘double-dip’
2. but we’ll learn to cope with the ups-and-downs
3. our phones will finally become smarter than us
4. but we’ll begin to tire of our gadgets and start appreciating our friends
5. and, we’ll start eating more irregular shaped vegetables
