“Tirar las cartas” (to throw the cards) in Spanish refers to fortune-telling with cards. What happens, when someone unintentionally throws a card on the floor or loses it? What does this say to the person who finds it about his/her future?

The starting point of this installation is 181 cards that I found on the street around the world over several years. Each card holds a story about how it was found and together in the installation they form a diamond surrounded by 444 new cards. In “El día de mañana siempre es mañana” (tomorrow remains tomorrow) found and bought cards invite reflection on the relationship between chance and destiny.
