Field of Good Fortune is a series of human scale fortune cookie fortunes. These fortunes are printed on conventional sign material mounted on sheeting and arranged to create a series of pathways in the grassy areas in front of Kendall. This arrangement is intended to redefine the space, allowing the viewer to walk around and experience the grassy area in a new context. These large-scale fortunes provide a moment of reflection in Grand Rapids during the ArtPrize festival. Each fortune was chosen from the artist’s extensive collection of fortune cookie fortunes. The selected fortunes, while seemingly random and cryptic, provide the viewer a point from which to contemplate their own personal good fortune and well-being.
