This work inquires reading and interpreting of the “images” of the coffee grounds. Sound and cups were exposed for the people to follow 3 different explanations (from Turkey, B&H and Croatia) of my future. Since the “images” were abstract, people were in a way seeing what they were told to see, similar as when laic is trying to understand the abstract or conceptual art and follows the “instructions”. Second thing that I was interested in was the quantity of personal in the fortune telling; is it really my destiny/fortune/future or is it defined by the person (and its character) who reads it?
