This Will Happen

Children across the globe have played this game with a folded piece of paper. It goes by various names including fortune teller, chatterbox and this will happen, and is basically the roll of dice to reveal hidden messages inside.

Humans have always turned to portents and predictions to second-guess the future and try to wrestle some sense of control. But there is a sense of inevitability in the patterns of the life cycle and the way that history is intent on repeating itself.

We All Fall Down was inspired by antibiotic resistance and how we will struggle against common infection in the future.

These small scale chatterboxes are made of folded calico with stitch, text and ink.
