Fortuneteller
Cast Hydrocal Plaster
6.30x6.30 in. (16x16 cm) ea.

The lack of guiding information is conspicuous in the sculptural installation Fortune Teller, which references the Origami paper game of chance intended to predict participants’ future. The repetition of form and absence of message invests the objects with an antithetical role, opening up endless possibilities. All these fortune tellers appear to be the exact same object with the same message: nothingness. The game of fortunetelling is reduced to a form of interpretation that allows the viewer to see nothing and everything at the same time.
