Borrowing from occult and Jodorowskian forms of theory and expression, Fortune's Womb transports the audience (consisting of a single person) to a nonsensical and reflective dimension of experience. Turning expectation on its head, the central figure appears to offer fortunes but actually creates an intuitive exchange involving objects, gestures, and cards with no associated meaning. "Meaning" is then configured by the audience's reformulation of expectation + experience. The central figure acts as a painting or a mirror, channeling information that is not accessible through verbal communication. The male gaze is subverted as per the central figure's servile counterparts, outfit, and overall domain, inviting sexual fantasy and the fetishization of the future to patronize their authority and sense of consumerism. Each performance is unique for every audience member.
