Everything that can happen in this world has already happened to someone else, and will probably happen to you. This installation makes fun of our need to look toward the future and wonder what’s coming next. For most of us, it isn’t that hard to guess. Most of us will find a job, get married, buy a house and have babies.
But what if it wasn’t that idealistic? What if you created the atomic bomb, died an untimely death because a vending machine fell on you, or became a dictator? From the ridiculous to the mundane, all of these predictions have happened to someone else, and could happen to you.
The submissions from this website will be part of an interactive installation in Toronto, Ontario in September 2012.
Participants will be ushered through a hallway at the Gladstone Hotel, that has hundreds of fortune cookies hanging from the ceiling. At 3am, the installation turns interactive. Participants will have the chance to tear down a fortune, break it open and see what’s in store.
