JJ Kitchen

Restaurants serve a function of mental health recovery in Chinese culture. Acting as an I'Ching diviner of fortune, artist Xiyun Xu presents a game-like performance at JJ Kitchen, a Chinese restaurant in Brooklyn. Participants get suggestions and lucky food foreseeing via I'Ching fortune-telling and table chat. This project aims to keep people's boredom away and catch their eyes on unexpected foods.
