After some time making complex computer-controlled interactive installations, the idea of making interactive artworks from one sheet of paper is appealing. I've used them on trains, in lobbies and in bathrooms. They are an excellent excuse to walk up to strangers and offer to fortell their future (although one American demanded to see all 8 fortunes in advance of risking a choice).

They are highly international (how did they spread?) They can be bilingual, or non-language based. Best of all they are essentially hand-made, home-made and free.

It's a big challenge to make such a small thing work visually, and to express the messages in under ten words (cootie haiku?)

I think I'll carry on making them. Send me news of yours.
