Dis-Orienting Fortune, 2019
This project was made as part of the exhibition series called "Words Matter" that was presented in Hastac Conference in 2019 Vancouver, Canada. It imagines how the word "Oriental" in cultural terms can be approached from industry and machine oriented communities. In this experience, the sewed illustration is an unfolded interpretation of Turkish coffee mug after being used and dried. The LCD however, loops a sequence of questions that asks whether if the audience also sees what had already been said about the fortune of the person who drank the coffee itself.
