The brief for this project was to choose a quote, interpret it and then create something 3D. I chose 'Don't believe a word'.
A lot of people rely on star signs, fortunes, people telling them what to do and often what they can or can't achieve. I thought about the different things people are told and from this how it affects their life.
Instead of having fortune cookies with pieces of paper with fortunes written on, I have left the pieces of paper blank and have hung them from the empty fortune cookie shells. The idea is to replace pre-written fortunes, star signs, and negative comments from people in day to day life and instead take opportunities and create your own fortune. Life is simply what you make it.
