John Maeda is The Fortune Cookie is a live exhibition in whcih the philosopher, artist, designer and educator, John Maeda, will dispense wisdom from his sandpit on the upper floor of the gallery.
Greeted at the door of Riflemaker by staff in white coats you will be asked to choose one of five methods of transmission from sending a text to Tweeting to Maeda drawing in the sand of his box or writing a message on the glass window with his finger in his own breath.
Following the consultation, you are invited to select a piece of art to purchase from choices outlined on the gallery walls - anything from a John Maeda Tweet or a signed Polaroid to a handmade 'computer'. The overall experience being somewhere between McKinsey Consulting going on tour and a visit to the hairdresser.
