Prophetic Characters (2015) is a set of five typographic works that appropriate fortune cookie phrases—truisms and benign prophecies that could easily apply to anyone. I separate the words onto two surfaces—the print and glazing of the frame—to expand the time and attention it takes to grasp what the viewer already knows.
