Flower of Answer/东南西北

A fortune-telling origami game.

Chenlan Yao



东南西北 refers to an origami game that I used to play when I was a kid.

This project is aiming at expressing a kind of nostalgia and share old happiness with my audience. During my further research, I found out that this origami game has some fortune-telling meaning in some Western cultures. Therefore, I created an interactive experience in which the audience can ask any question, and the origami will offer the answer. I was trying to rebuild my memory of those good old days with new ideas of interaction based on the combination of different cultures.
