    Field of Good Fortune, 2011

    6 units 48″x144″ each

    Field of Good Fortune is a series of human scale fortune cookie fortunes. These fortunes are printed on conventional sign material mounted on sheeting and arranged to create a series of pathways in the grassy area on the corner of Main and Lady. This arrangement is intended to redefine the space allowing the viewer to walk around and experience the grassy area in a new context. The large-scale fortunes provide a moment of respite and reflection in the capitol city. Each fortune was chosen from the artist’s extensive collection of fortune cookie fortunes. The selected fortunes, while seeming random and cryptic  provide the citizens of Columbia a point from which to contemplate their own personal good fortune and well-being.
