A small group of astronauts wakes up to find that their ship has crash-landed on a planet where humans are prelingual and uncivilized and apes have the supreme qualities of speech and use technology. We can see that the dystopia of director Franklin J. Schaffner is not very different from what we live in, with elements such as existential debates, oppressive authority opposing intellectual and kinetic progress.

Inspired by the exhibition And Now the Good News, which focusing on the relationship between mass media and art, we prepared horoscope readings based on the chapters of the exhibition. Using the popular astrological language inspired by the effects of the movements of celestial bodies on people, these readings with references to the works in the exhibition make fictional future predictions inspired by the horoscope columns that we read in the newspapers with the desire to receive good news about our day.
