SUREL'S FORTUNE TREE
THE MODERN HOTEL
This installation was a collaboration amongst friends of Surel Mitchell to collectively create one of the last projects she was unable to bring to fruition. There were many friends and family, too numerous to count, who created this simple interactive visual feast.
Hundreds of fortunes, hand written on small scraps of paper, were tied individually to an eclectic tree. A passerby was able to "pick" a fortune from the tree to take with them forever. Most of these fortunes came from sitting around the table with Surel and friends.
