Using bright colours and a humous tone, the project (un)Lucky Card explores the conflict between the human's tendency to seek certainty from uncertainty and the subsequent inability to find any.
People’s enthusiasm in those inspirational quotes on Pinterest and religions tells the tendency for humans to hide into the positive blessing words. However, like how Hermann Hesse indicated about Self-deprecating in his book “Steppenwolf”, all the language signs that instigate people to be strong, open-minded, tolerant and open can't save me, self-deprecating is the only way to save me. The antidote to life’s disorder and meaninglessness is the humour.
I adopted the classic sentence structure from the lucky cookies and Japanese Omatori visual style, designed a series of lucky cards. Each of the cards shows a good wish but with a negative, boring explanatory text underneath in order to engage with the audience in a humorous way.
